    For the life of me I can't remember how to get files to copy through ssh from my remote mac to the one I am on.

    I thought it was something along these lines after searching, but still no luck

    Code:
    scp user@remote_mac_address:/path/to/screenshot /local/path/to/save
    Back in the day I used slightly different means that worked, however like I said I can't remember or find the same page as reference.

    Your command line looks right. What's the error message you get?
