Linux to OSX via SSH command - Mac Applications & Software

Can anyone one tell me how to do this. I have Linux set-up on an old mac (with no ftp access), and I want to be able to transfer files between this and OSX. I have been able to change files via VI and the SSH command, but not sure how to copy files across. Any help would be great, Thanks. andy:p...

    sure how to copy files across.

    Use the scp (secure copy) command. The basic syntax is

    scp file [email]usernameremote.mach[/email]ine:/path/where/you/want/it

    The man page (man scp from a terminal window) will give you more detail
    that you probably want...take a look at the -r flag for recursion, which
    will let you move entire directories rather than file-at-a-time.

    From Linux to Mac OS X, try using sftp which should already
    be ready to go on your Mac.
