I have an Ubuntu Server that works on VPN, to connect to the machine I use ssh. I would like to transfer some files from my Mac box to Ubuntu server.

Can anyone explain or point where to search for?

You can use one of the following:

- rsync

- scp (preferable)

- filezilla

The use of scp from Mac box:

scp file_on_Mac_box username@ubuntubox:. The (dot) at the end of ubuntubox:. indicates that the files would be placed into the home dir of username
