scp -rp Week09 firstname.lastname@example.org:"/some/remote/path/with a space/"
Gives me an error:
scp: ambiguous target
The issue is caused by the space in the remote path which needs to be escaped like this:
scp -rp Week09 email@example.com:"/some/remote/path/with\ a\ space/"
Basically you add a backslash in front of each space.
