I have a file on my local computer I wish to copy to a remote server using the SSH program (not scp, not rsync, not sftp), the local file is an SSL private key and I do not want to create any temporary copies on the remote server during the transfer.
The root user on the remote server cannot login via SSH for security reasons, however my remote user (with the same username as my local user) can make root changes through the
sudo command after a password prompt.
Problem: How do I copy the local file, login via SSH, switch to the root user with
sudo password prompt and then write the file to the remote server in a root user owned directory? And preferably all in a single line command!
