Have a situation that SCP and SFTP wouldn't work for. I've RTFM for SSH, but can't find what I'm looking for.
The scenario is that in order to transfer files to the server, I first SCP them into a user directory, then log in with SSH using a limited user account, SU to root, and then move the files where they need to be.
Because the server does not allow root login, is there a way to login with SSH, SU to root, and transfer files from the local machine?
Really I'm just looking for a more efficient practice then the going back-and-forth like I've been doing.
As a addition, I'd appreciate any links in the comments to GUI clients that would allow this on a Mac so I could drag & drop files from the local machine into the appropriate remote directory. An SFTP GUI client seems the logical choice, but the required elevated user permissions prevents it from doing what I need.
