Just remember that scp will not copy the resource fork so you may end up with a file you cannot use.

You have to copy the file first and then the resource fork:

scp test.001491.shtml.webloc/rsrc imac:Desktop
scp test.001491.shtml.webloc/rsrc imac:Desktop/test.001491.shtml.webloc/rsrc

Another way that may work is to package the file in an archive before copying it.

One thing I didn't find a way to do yet is to scp a file which contains colons ":" in its name. Escaping the colons no single quoting the file name does not works.
