How do you copy files from one UNIX server to another?

I have files in thomas.butler.edu, user rblomber, and I want to copy them to euclid.butler.edu, user epics.  I've tried using cp to copy into the correct directory, but I can't seem to find the directory.

I'm looking for the cshell command to do this; I'm not very good with ftp.

PerlChaser,

(1) what type of UNIX do you use for thomas.butler.edu and euclid.butler.edu?

(2) Generally, you can use FTP (if euclid.butler.edu FTP service is granted for epics@euclid.butler.edu) from thomas.

(rblomber@thosmas) $ cd <dir which source file located>
(rblomber@thosmas) $ ftp euclid.butler.edu
login:epics
password:******
ftp> cd <remote dir>
ftp> put <filename>
ftp> quit

Regards,
suprakoma

There is no csh (or any other common shell for that matter) command to copy files to a remote server.

Your question is extremely vague.

It seems to imply that there maybe NFS mounted directories (but who can say).

There are so many different ways to copy files to a remote host depending on what services are available/enabled, including:

rsh
rcp
rdist
rsync
scp
sftp
ftp
