  scp  is even easier, in my experience, as a command-line tool.
It allows for usual shell wildcards and pattern-matching,
and has all the security of  ssh .

Once you know the target location, it takes just a single command
to move all the files that match a given pattern.

If you don't know the target, then use an  ssh  connection to
log-in and determine it --- this is similar to using  stfp .
If there is a need to work with the transferred files,
then you may have needed to log-in anyway.
