Issue with scp, ssh and files types

Hi Experts, I'm doing:
ssh user@remote_IP find remote_path -name Transfer_data. * -maxdepth 1 perm perm -444 / 222! -perm / 111 -type f> TEMP_GIS / lista.lst

Open in new window

then on "TEMP_GIS / lista.lst" I have:

Open in new window

this is almost correct, but how do I copy these files using scp -p command to another local directory, called INPUTS_GIS?

And I need in lista.lst:

Open in new window

Sorry if the question is very basic, but I need to resolve it as quickly as possible.
Thank you very much

To make "lista.lst" contain just the filenames you can do:

ssh user@remote_IP find remote_path ... ... ... -type f |xargs -I{} basename {} > TEMP_GIS/lista.lst

Open in new window

"... ..." stands for the rest of the find command (i didn't want to type all that).

Please explain what you mean with "copy to another local directory"!

Do you mean "copy the files listed in "lista.lst" from the remote server to the local machine"?

If so, you could do:

xargs -I{} scp user@remote_IP:/source/path/{}   /INPUTS_GIS/ < TEMP_GIS/lista.lst

Open in new window

"/source/path/ is the path on "remote_IP", probably "/remote_path".

basename command shows just file name minus path
