Using Nautilus I was able to connect to a server via ssh.
Once doing that I can use Nautilus to explore and copy files. All using the GUI.
But what if I want to use cp to copy files? Is the SSH file system automatically mounted? Where? Or can I mount it? How? Or can cp be use to refer to the external system? How?
Is there a better way to copy files from one box to another?
I actually tried to do the copy (newer files only) using the GUI and it didn't copy all newer files! There are some 520,000 files. Could that "overwhelm" the GUI? Something seems wrong and I grasping at straws.
