Unix server to Hard-drive connected on the machine

Hi,

I have an external hard drive connected to my iMac.

I am logged into a Linux_x86_64 server. Now, if I want to download files directly to the hard drive, is there a way to do it.

Currently, I am chasing cyberduck to download content to the hard drive.

I am logged into the server using the Mac's terminal.

Try the scp command. It works more easily if you have ssh keys installed on the Linux box.
I am assuming the iMac supports the SSH protocol without having to do a lot of configuration.

Example:
Code:
scp linux_node_name::/path_to_files/*jpg  /path/to/where/Iwant/these/files/
