Transferring Files via SCP

One of the primary and easy ways to transfer large files from one system to another is through SCP, this is generally quite easy and can be established from one system to another in a matter of minutes depending on the size of the file:

scp cpmove-example.tar.gz root@IPADDRESS:/home

This is a primary example of how to SCP one file from one system to another, there are numerous way to do this but this one does manage to do the trick - remember though you will need the ROOT password of the opposing system to make the above example work.
