scp with port number

SCP command is used to copy files between servers in secure way. The basic syntax of the SCP command is as follows:

scp source_file_name username@destination_host:destination_folder

This command will copy the file from local to the remote server location.

scp user@remote_host:/source_file_name /destination_folder

The above command will copy the file from remote server to local.

You can use the scp command with port no also. For that use the syntax,

scp -P portnumber filename your_username@remotehost:destnation_folder

That’s all
