Using SSH on Kali : Uploading Files Using SSH on Kali Linux

Written by: Pranshu Bajpai | Find Pranshu on Google+ And LinkedIn

Accessing a Remote Machine using ssh is simple, just make sure you have SSH running on the remote machine, and that you have generated the key-pair:
# service ssh start

# start ssh


# /etc/init.d/ssh start
 Then, generate a Key-Pair:
# sshd-generate
Next, use your machine to connect to this remote ssh server:
$ ssh <ip-of-the-machine-you-want-to-connect-to>
$ Password: <of-the-user-account-of-the-remote-machine-you-are-connecting-to>

Using SSH to Upload Files on Remote Computer:

Open up a new Terminal and type:

#scp –P 40050 <PATH>/file.txt <USER-ACCOUNT>@<IP-OF_REMOTE>:<PATH>/file.txt
If you get an Error like: "Cannot connect to host. Connection refused", then try removing the '-p 40050' switch. That is, don't specify the port
