    probably that is happening because your old hosting service is not giving your full accesss via SSH, in which case you will not be able to do what you want.

    You should try this command wget filename as far as i know you canot transfer mutliple files at one time through ssh but if you have any control panel then you can transfer your sites through whm or whatever control panel you have..:)

    Gzip and Tar everything then upload it and then uncompress it. You can create small backups using this method too.
