Move file from one Linux machine to another

The cp command is pretty useful, but what if you want to move a file or folder from one Linux machine to another? For that, you're best off using rsync.

rsync -a -e ssh /currentDirectory/ newServer:/newDirectory

This will move your data from the location you specify as the currentDirectory to the newDirectory on the newServer, and also retain the symbolic links between files.

I found the information here
