With SSH you can sign into the server and download files directly from other servers.
Note: You must have an account that includes Secure Shell/SSH Access. Not all accounts include this feature.
Note: SSH should not be used by those unfamiliar with a Unix environment.
1. Connect to the server with an SSH client and enter your username and password.
If you don't have an SSH client we suggest the freeware client Putty.
2. Change to the directory where you want the files to be downloaded to.
3. To download from a web server type: wget http://www.server.com/filename.ext
To download from a FTP server type: wget ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/filename.ext
