Run this command in  your terminal:

scp your_username@remotehost.edu:foobar.txt /local/dir

change the username, filename, host, directory as desired. Use the -i option if you plan on using EC2 (or any other service that needs a private key)

scp -i key_file.pem your_username@remotehost.edu:/remote/dir/foobar.txt /local/dir
