I have to transport a lot of files from one PC to another (both Linux). I would like to use
scp for that, but
scp only allows for transferring one file at a time.
How can I do this?
- No possibility to use rsync or any other protocol
- No possibility to use passphrase-free certificates (but have a certificate with a passphrase)
- A list of files to transfer and a list with the destination path of the files on the other server
- The files are spread out over a lot of directories, and not all the files in the directories I want to copy
If possible, I would like to gzip and ungzip transparently to save bandwidth!
Is this possible?
