- SSH easily copy file to local system 9 answers
It often happens that I'm SSH'd into another machine and I'd like to download a file onto my local machine without having to open a new terminal and scp. For example, something like this:
local $ ssh remote remote $ ls remote_file remote $ download remote_file … remote $ ^D local $ ls remote_file
Is there any way — even a terrible hack — to let me download a file while I'm SSH'd into the remote host, without using SCP?
I'd considered playing some tricks with, ex,
$SSH_CLIENT, but that won't work when my local machine is behind a NAT (which is basically all the time).
