How to download a file from server using SSH?

user10811 Published in September 20, 2018, 1:30 pm

I need to download a file from server to my desktop. (UBUNTU 10.04) I don't have a web access to the server, just ssh.

If it helps, my OS is Mac OS X and iTerm 2 as a terminal.

    @EdwardBlack could have been migrated to unix.stackexchange instead – gldraphael May 31 '16 at 4:57
