1- What is Cyberduck?

Cyberduck is a free, open-source program that allows you to transfer files between Mac OS and another computer. It supports several file transfer protocols, most notably SFTP over SSH. The tool allows you to transfer files between computers securely.
Note: Cyberduck supports both Windows and Mac OS operating systems. It has the same features as WinSCP (A file transfer program written for Windows).
With Cyberduck, you can transfer files from Mac OS to any "X" computer via SFTP protocol as long as "X" has SSH Server installed. Cyberduck is a fantastic choice to transfer files from Mac OS to Linux (Ubuntu,...) and vice versa, because most Linux servers come with SSH Server pre-installed.
