SCP Syntax

Could someone please help me with the exact command I need to use to transfer a file using SCP ?

I have never used SCP before, nor have I ever logged into a UNIX box.

I want to transfer a file called junos-jsr-10.0R4.7-export.tgz from my root of my Macbook Pro Hard Drive @ 172.16.99.57  to /var/tmp on a FreeBSD server @ 172.16.35.134.  There is IP connectivity between the two hosts.

What command do I enter, and do I enter it on the Macbook Pro or on the FreeBSD server ?

No doubt sounds simple to you all but I have no clue. ;) - Thankyou.

On your Macbook Pro use


scp  junos-jsr-10.0R4.7-export.tgz username@172.16.35.134:/var/tmp


Or on the FreeBSD server, do

scp username@172.16.99.57:/path/to/ junos-jsr-10.0R4.7-export.tgz /var/tmp

Hello Tintin - thanks for helping me.

This is the result from my Macbook Pro:

Pauls-MacBook-Pro:~ Paul$ scp junos-jsr-10.0R4.7-export.tgz root@172.16.35.134:/var/tmp
Password:
Connection to 172.16.35.134 closed by remote host.
lost connection
Pauls-MacBook-Pro:~ Paul$


I see the following on the server:

sshd[208]: fatal:monitor_read: unsupported request: 24

Could you tell me what I am doing wrong please?

Thanks Tintin for solving this for me.  Your commands worked great once I used an account other than root to make the connection.  Appreciate your time.
