Regarding to this link How to copy a file from a remote server to a local machine?

I have access to VPN and to user alice with IP. I use command

scp alice@ /home/mylocaldirectory

I get response

/home/mylocaldirectory: Permision denied

Do you know why and how I can download file from server? I use kali linux.

I also tried

scp -r alice@ root@kali:~/home

    Please add the result of ls -ld /home/mylocaldirectory on the machine where you ran the first scp command in your question
