scp it is possible to copy files (and directories) from one Linux account to the other.
scp is followed by what to copy, and then by where to copy it. In case of directories, the
-r switch can be used to copy recursively. Note that
~ refers to the home directory of a user, and
. refers to the current directory. Remote paths consist of the user name (like
tue+s0123456), followed by an
@ symbol, a machine name, a colon, and path on the target machine for the target user. For the machine name you can use the same name as the machine you current work on. The name is included at each prompt in the command terminal, as well as in the title bar of the terminal.
