I am working on a Debian environment and I have to pull a Couchbase database from a remote server location into my local Dev environment.

I wasn't able to find any kind of details on this topic so any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

What do you mean by pull? Is it pull the database over? cbbackup/cbrestore is one option, and cbtransfer and the built in XDCR. The former is better for one-time setup. – Matt Ingenthron Jun 11 '14 at 15:19

The usual trick is using scp. The usual is:

scp user@remotemachine:/path/to/remote/file.db /path/to/local/dir/

You may be able to use a password, or SSH (scp runs under ssh) may be configured to require a Keyfile to log in. Try the copy, see if your password can work.

There is a simple tutorial here.
