(There is such a thing as cut & paste, it's magic.  ;-)

It's lower case -p.

Re: file copy

Hi rajesh73,

 

You can use rcp command:

For example from source_server:


rcp -rp  .../file.tar root@destination_server:.../file.tar

where .../file.tar is the file in the source server and .../file.tar is the file inside the destination server.

If you want to copy one file to the same directory to a remote server you can go to the directory that you want (for example cd /tmp) and then:

 

rcp -rp test.txt hpsep2:$pwd

 

Where test.txt is the file that you want to copy and hpsep2 is the name of your remote server

Best regards,

Spyros
