Display Sftp multiple files in single command

Hi All,

I would like to sftp 2 files with a single command. I tried the below options,

sftp suer@test13:"/u01/home/oracle/SetDb.sh /u01/home/oracle/.profile" ./

But what actually happens is

Fetching /u01/home/oracle/SetDb.sh to /u01/home/oracle/.profile
/u01/home/oracle/SetDb.sh                                                                                                     100%   14KB  14.3KB/s   00:00

SetDb.sh file is overwritted as .profile.

I would like to transfer 2 files SetDb.sh & .profile

Kindly suggest.

Can you use scp? This works with scp:
scp suer@test13:"/u01/home/oracle/SetDb.sh /u01/home/oracle/.profile" ./

Thanks for your swift response.

scp command which you have mentioned works in other servers.

But in this server we dont have scp installed, any other options?

You can try transferring it using SSH and cpio:
ssh suer@test13 'cd /u01/home/oracle/; find . -name SetDb.sh -o -name .profile | cpio -oc' | cpio -imu
