The answer is to use "scp" which is cp over ssh. It comes as a standard
binary part of the ssh suite. If you have ssh, you have scp.
scp -r (-r means "recursive")
Now just type "scp" and the RETURN key for a description of the
parameters. You didn't mention if the source was local and destination
remote or vice versa... so I don't have the definitive answer for you.
But assuming the source is local, you would type :
scp -r SOURCE-DIRECTORY USER at R-MOTE-HOST:REMOTE-DIR
