Local flder t1/, file tt1. example: scp -r -P 22 t1/ [email protected]:/mnt/share/t2/ -r: recursively. -P: Port nr. Note: captical char. Result: if /mnt/share/ has folder t2/, t1/ will be in t2/. if no such a dir, t1/ will be renamed as t2/ inside share/. if there is file t2: mnt/share/t2, will get error “scp: /mnt/share/t2: Not a directory”. scp will NOT create new folder on server.
