DATA TRANSFER WITH RSYNC with SSH

rsync , which stands for ‘remote sync’, is a remote and local file synchronisation tool.
What makes rsync unique is that when it transfers files, it minimises the amount of data copied by only transferring the portions of files that have changed.
While rsync can be used to sync directories on the same system, where it becomes particularly powerful is when it’s used between machines over a network or even the internet.
Extremely straightforward to configure provided you have SSH access to the remote machine, the command to push a directory to a remote machine is simply:
rsync -a username@remote_host:/home/username/remotedir localdir the command to push a file to a remote machine is simply:
rsync filename root@192.168.1.104:/root/Desktop/filename Additional options for rsync enable features such as compression,

Picture the scene. You’re SSHed into a remote server, doing something really important. You’re just in the middle of running a command on the database whenyour Wi-Fi drops.

You connect back to the server immediately, but you start a new
session and you have no idea if the previous operation completed.

Nightmare! A great solution to this is the ‘screen’ tool.
This is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes, typically interactive shells. 
Each virtual terminal has a separate scrollback history buffer and a copy-and-paste mechanism that allows the user to move text regions between windows. When screen is first opened, it creates a single window with a shell in it (or the specified command) and then gets out of your way so that you can use the program as you normally would. 
Then, at any time, you can create new (full-screen) windows with other programs in them (including more shells), kill the current window, view a list of the active…
