Specify a port with the scp command

Answer:

If you want to use scp to copy file to remote machine, but that ssh server is listening at port other than 22, you can use the following command syntax.

# scp -P 6000 test.txt john@remoteserver:/home/john/

Please notes it is -P, not -p.

  1. Thanks!

    I used the X11 (terminal) Mac OS and typed the following command:
    scp -P 2222 -r /Users/meunome/media.tar usuario@dominio.com.br:/home/dominio/public_html

    Thank you for the tip!
