Remote copy files On server or machine to Remote server

I always need to use this method for copy files one remote machine to another machine. there are many tool to do that. filezilla, winscp and many more. But I like command prompt.
scp is command is very useful for file transfer on remote machine.

To copy local file on remote machine use following command

#scp FILENAME  USERNAME@55.86.59.95:/home/USER/

To copy file from remote machine use following command

#scp USERNAME@55.86.59.95:/home/USER/FILENAME  .
or use
#scp USERNAME@55.86.59.95:/home/USER/FILENAME  *

To copy file from remote machin using scp command with port

#scp -P54 USERNAME@55.86.59.95:/home/USER/FILENAME  .
or use
#scp -P54 USERNAME@55.86.59.95:/home/USER/FILENAME  *

Above commands will execute faster than other tools.
