scp <source> <destination>

One of them can be on a remote machine specified as:
user at machine:/full/path/to/location

Doesn't cygwin provide the 'man' program for online documentation? 'man scp' 
would give you the documentation for the scp command on most unix machines. 
Most commands also have minimal self-documentation if called with the -h or --
help switch, or if passed unrecognised switches.
