How to transfer files from one machine to another?

Hello -

I am wondering what would be a command to copy files from one machine to another unix machine?

For example:

I am currently logged into: beta-machine01
my current directory is: /home/router

I want to copy file from machine: beta-machine02
the file is located inside: /home/router2/test.log

both machines are on same network. both machines are unix OS

how to go about?

Using ftp is typically one way people copy files from one computer to another.
Logon to first computer
start ftp program
open connection to second computer
(provide username/password authentication)
change directory on 2nd (remote) computer
change directory on 1st (local) computer
issue a GET command to get the remote file
