scp

If you want to upload from the remote server to your own then [on the remote server]

scp filename  username@destination.hostname.com:/path/to/directory/

If you want to download from the remote server then

scp username@hostname.that.has.file:/path/to/name_of_file_to_download  /local/path/to/directory/

I was able to load files but i could not upload files.

Was this the command to upload to the remote server?
scp filename  username@destination.hostname.com:/path/to/directory/

Yes, that's the syntax to upload a file to a remote ssh server with scp.

The destination directory needs to already exist

The -r option can also be used to download/upload entire directories recursively also

The  man scp  
command should bring up the manual page for the utility, by the way.
