"This isn't really programming related, but you can use scp to do this.

scp file.zip remote-box-name:/path/to/destination/file.zip

If your username is different on the remote box, you will need to prefix it:

scp file.zip yourusername@remotebox:/path/to/destination/file.zip

And to retrieve a file you could do this:

scp remotebox:/path/to/destination/file.zip file.zip"

"you need to use scp to either pull or push the file. From one machine to the other, you'd do something like

scp File.zip username@ipaddress:/home/me/Desktop/file.zip"
