Aside from the other points that have been or will be made in this
thread, you might consider this:

Not all files on a centos system are actually files. For instance if
you try to ftp/scp the '/' dir, you will undoubtedly encounter /dev,
/sys, and /proc. Any of which would cause your ftp session to run
forever or until you filled the machine on the other end, because the
files located within these directories are not really files, but
operations and data sources (hard drives, random data, constant
streams of data, etc). You really need to re-think and better explain
what it is that you're trying to do.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
