Remote file copy
rcp [-p] [-T] source_file target_file rcp [-p] [-r] [-T] source_file... target_dir
The rcp utility copies files between machines. Each file or directory argument is either of the following:
If the specified path isn't a full pathname, it's interpreted relative to the login directory of the specified user ruser on rhost, or of your current username if no other remote username (rname) is specified. A path on a remote host may be quoted (using \, ", or ') so that the metacharacters are interpreted remotely.
The rcp utility doesn't prompt for passwords; it performs remote execution via rsh, and requires the same authorization.
The rcp utility handles third-party copies, where neither source nor target files are on the current machine.
The rcp utility requires the libsocket.so shared library.
The rcp utility doesn't always detect that the target of a copy is a file in cases where only a directory should be legal. It's also confused by any output generated by commands in a .login or .profile file on the remote host.
