CentOS 7.0 - man page for rcp (centos section 1)

RCP(1)				   BSD General Commands Manual				   RCP(1)

     rcp -- remote file copy

     rcp [-px] file1 file2
     rcp [-px] [-r] file ... directory

     Rcp copies files between machines.  Each file or directory argument is either a remote file
     name of the form ``rname@rhost:path'', or a local file name (containing no `:' characters,
     or a `/' before any `:'s).

     -r    If any of the source files are directories, rcp copies each subtree rooted at that
	   name; in this case the destination must be a directory.

     -p    The -p option causes rcp to attempt to preserve (duplicate) in its copies the modifi-
	   cation times and modes of the source files, ignoring the umask.  By default, the mode
	   and owner of file2 are preserved if it already existed; otherwise the mode of the
	   source file modified by the umask(2) on the destination host is used.

     If path is not a full path name, it is interpreted relative to the login directory of the
     specified user ruser on rhost, or your current user name if no other remote user name is
     specified.  A path on a remote host may be quoted (using \, ", or ') so that the metacharac-
     ters are interpreted remotely.

     Rcp does not prompt for passwords; it performs remote execution via rsh(1), and requires the
     same authorization.

     Rcp handles third party copies, where neither source nor target files are on the current

     cp(1), ftp(1), rsh(1), rlogin(1)

     The rcp command appeared in 4.2BSD.

     Doesn't detect all cases where the target of a copy might be a file in cases where only a
     directory should be legal.

     Is confused by any output generated by commands in a .login, .profile, or .cshrc file on the
     remote host.

     The destination user and hostname may have to be specified as ``rhost.rname'' when the des-
     tination machine is running the 4.2BSD version of rcp.
