Edit a remote file using vi and scp - linux


unstableme.log is a file on server 172.21.20.104 /root directory. In order to edit this file from your local system the command is:

$ vim scp://root@172.21.20.104//root/unstableme.log

** This requires key based ssh access to the remote server 172.21.20.104.

For more details on editing remote files via scp in vim read the vim tip from vim.org
