( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You are getting a password prompt. That means that scp is installed locally and the Linux system is responding.

The error here is that your Windows system says that the file you're trying to copy is not found.

It could also be a permissions issue. Check that the user you're using scp with can actually open the document.

Observe:

steve@maezi ~/scratch/scp_test >ll total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 steve staff 64 11 Jan 15:20 . drwxr-xr-x 14 steve staff 448 11 Jan 15:20 .. steve@maezi ~/scratch/scp_test >scp blah.txt cesium:/home/steve blah.txt: No such file or directory steve@maezi ~/scratch/scp_test >touch blah.txt steve@maezi ~/scratch/scp_test >ll total 0 drwxr-xr-x 3 steve staff 96 11 Jan 15:22 . drwxr-xr-x 14 steve staff 448 11 Jan 15:20 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 steve staff 0 11 Jan 15:22 blah.txt steve@maezi ~/scratch/scp_test >scp blah.txt cesium:/home/steve blah.txt 100% 0 0. +0KB/s 00:00

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
