    Help: I want to upload to my server directly from the internet
    As my internet connection is very slow in Iraq, I want to "download" a file from a website (I'm trying to get an updated release of my Jabber client to my server). I have SSH access, is there any command that I can run over there to have it download the file to itself, rather than me very slowly download 30mb, and then very very slowly upload 30mb (we're talking over a day)?

    If you can remotely connect to the server, which is sounds like you can, you could connect to it (SSH), then run FTP from the server to suck down the file directly to that box instead of to your laptop/system.

    I discovered the "wget" command, which did exactly what I was hoping for.

    Question number two: if I have an ssh connection open to my server, can I send a file through that ssh tunnel somehow?

    curl would have been another possibility too.

    This thread may help. When I mention afp in that thread, I think you may have to have Appletalk active on that remote machine. This would allow you to drag and drop files.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I've grown quite fond of the simplicity of sftp actually, I'm a pretty big fan at this point. I have GUI clients to accomplish things, but I'm trying to stick to the terminal only, just for fun.
