You can receive files from another host using wget or an FTP client. To actually SEND them to another client is tough.

Your best bet is emailing from one to the other, or put the file somewhere accessible via the web, and wget it from the recipient machine.

Or, setup a Samba share.

The command installed with ssh is called scp; it basically copies files over the ssh connection (sometimes called 'tunneling').

Any machine that has ssh installed and functional *should* also have scp or sftp; though I would think the former more than the latter.
