and in fact, if /home/user1 is user1 at otherhost's home directory, that 
can be shortened to...

    $ scp user1 at otherhost:myfile .

you can also copy the other way...

    $ scp myfile user1 at otherhost:.

which would put it in user1 at otherhost's home directory...  or...

    $ scp -R .  user1 at otherhost:/remote/path

would copy ALL files and subdirectories from the current directory to 
/remote/path on otherhost...

`man scp` for lots more options...
