Hi Akshay ,

Thanks for the reply,

But my requirement is different what you have given solution.
My requirement is that it will search for specific file/folder on a given location and that search result will be copied using scp command.

something like this

ssh user@server "find path/to/look  -name 'file-pattern'" > /tmp/file-list.txt
while read name; do
        scp user@server:$name /destination/;
done < /tmp/file-list.txt

# 5  
scp -r path/to/search/*pattern* user@remote:/file/destination
