How to transfer a file to ssh server in an ssh-connection made by paramiko?

I am using Python's paramiko packet to keep an ssh-connection with an server :

s = paramiko.SSHClient()
s.set_missing_host_key_policy(paramiko.AutoAddPolicy())
s.connect("xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx",22,username=xxx,password='',timeout=4)


I want to use this ssh-connection to transfer a file to ssh server, how can i do?

Just like use
scp a-file xxx@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:filepath

command?

Answer

Try this:

s = paramiko.SSHClient()
s.set_missing_host_key_policy(paramiko.AutoAddPolicy())
s.connect("xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx",22,username=xxx,password='',timeout=4)

sftp = s.open_sftp()
sftp.put('/home/me/file.ext', '/remote/home/file.ext')
