I know there are some similar questions has been asked here and I did read them... however, I still can not copy a file from a remote machine down to my local computer... I am keep getting error like "No such file or directory"
Here is what I do. I open terminal on MacOS, log in to the remote machine,
cd to the folder I want. Now, under this folder I have a .txt file, say "error.txt", and I want to copy this file down to my local desktop.
I get the directory for my local desktop by just drag the desktop folder into the terminal and I got a path
Then I tried the following commands (while under the folder the error.txt is inside the remote machine):
scp -r error.txt /Users/myname/Desktop
or some variations
scp -r error.txt :/Users/myname/Desktop scp -r error.txt ~/Users/myname/Desktop scp -r error.txt Users/myname/Desktop
but all of them are keep giving me the error like
cannot create regular file `/Users/myname/Desktop': No such file or directory
Maybe my trouble is how to correct write my local path? But I can cd to my local desktop by using the path
/Users/muname/Desktop while inside my local machine...
Any helps? Thank you!
