Hello.

I have alot of stupid questions here.. if you have time to answer I would be most greateful.

Can anyone explain the whole flow to me?
From SCP Client to a server.

Does it have to be a SSH server on the other side?
And how does a SSH server works?

Can u use this client to send files to an FTP server as well?

Is there a server certificate or something?

Yes it have to be SSH server. Both for SCP and SFTP protocol.

It does an encryption of the TCP/IP stream. Well it does many other things, but this one is the most important.

The server has its public and private key. You may have yours pair as well, if you do not want to use password authentication.
