Yes. Of course.
In order to copy a file from a remote server to the local computer, we
can use another SCP syntax:

scp user1_at_remote_server:~/file.txt .
This will copy a file file.txt located in a home folder of user user1
of a remote system to the local folder (the one we are currently in).

Hope it helps !!!
