From LPTMS Wiki
- the scp command:
:> scp server:directory here
- if you do some regular updates, there is no -update option to scp. Then, better use the rsync command. For instance with
:> rsync -avub -e ssh server:data/*.gz data/
be careful with the slash after directory names, with or without is no exactly the same behavior. Look at man rsync before using it.
