This question already has an answer here:
I'm on a virtual machine trying to copy a file from SSH to local system. Using Debian. I don't see the "Connect to" option. When I try to do it trough terminal, I enter
scp [firstname.lastname@example.org]:[path to the file obtained using "find"]
and it just gives me options for scp usage like -c etc If I enter the above command and add Downloads, it says file name and 100%, size etc, but the Downloads folder is empty What am I doing wrong? Please help!
