One way is to set up .rhosts on your Linux box with a list of domains and
usernames allowed to connect to you, then use 'rcp' (see 'man rlogin' and
'man rcp'). There may also be something that can do this more securely
(crypted) using ssh.
But I usually simply open an ftp program and use that. If using the
console, are you aware that you have at least 6 virtual terminals at your
disposal (Alt-F1 thru Alt-F6), and can set up more if you want them? Of
course in X it is easy to open an ftp program or another xterm for ncftp.
