Using sftp to download to client
Posted on 2006-07-06
I have a Slackware 9.1 Linux box running an sshd server.
The Slack box is accessible by WinXP cleints uisng PuTTY.
The sftp server on the Slack box is also functional and accessible by the following:
llg@primary:~$ sftp -oPort=44444 llg@localhost
Connecting to localhost...
success, i'm in.
Now I want to download some .iso files on the Slack Box so I do:
sftp> get /archive/backup/iso-filesiso
Groovy, it's downloading, but where to?
I find that the files have simply been copied to the / <<root>> folder.
This is not what I want.
I want to download the .iso file to a client machine from which I am accessing the sftp server on the Slack Box.
What am I missing.
Thanks for your help and patience. :-)
