The easiest way to copy files from one server to another over ssh is to use the scp command. For calling scp you'd need the subprocess module.
import subprocess p = subprocess.Popen(["scp", "my_file.txt", "username@server:path"]) sts = os.waitpid(p.pid, 0)
You need the waitpid call to wait for the copying to complete.
Another solution is to open a ssh connection and use the scp module.
from paramiko import SSHClient from scp import SCPClient ssh = SSHClient() ssh.load_system_host_keys() ssh.connect('user@server:path') with SCPClient(ssh.get_transport()) as scp: scp.put('my_file.txt', 'my_file.txt') # Copy my_file.txt to the server
