Hi chaituu,

cp -R /oc4j/j2ee/home/applications ~/node1

I presumed that C: was typo - since this is Linux TA

Hi chaituu,

You do not have to change directories to execute this command
cp -R /oc4j/j2ee/home/applications ~/node1

Absolute path for source and destination have been specified ... ~/ refers to home directory.
Cheers!

hi if you want to copy from a remote server then you need to use "scp" than cp.

if it is from a remote machine to your local machine then use

scp -r x.x.x.:/oc4j/j2ee/home/applications     /path/to/local/directory

where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the server FROM which you want to copy.

if it is from within the server then you need to do only a cp.
