Copy files between local and remote systems. It mimics the behavior of the cp command but operates across different machines. More information:

  • Copy a file to a remote host:

rcp {{path/to/local_file}} {{username}}@{{remotehost}}:{{/path/to/destination/}}

  • Copy a directory recursively:

rcp -r {{path/to/local_directory}} {{username}}@{{remotehost}}:{{/path/to/destination/}}

  • Preserve the file attributes:

rcp -p {{path/to/local_file}} {{username}}@{{remotehost}}:{{/path/to/destination/}}

  • Force copy without a confirmation:

rcp -f {{path/to/local_file}} {{username}}@{{remotehost}}:{{/path/to/destination/}}
