Copying a File to the Raspberry Pi
From the Command Line
If you want to copy a file to the Raspberry Pi form your PC, use the following command:
scp <filename> pi@<ip address of the pi>:~/
scp getmyip.jar firstname.lastname@example.org:~/
This will copy the file into the home directory (/home/pi). During the process, you will be asked for the password for the username pi. If you did not change anything, that password is raspberry.
