Hi all, When I try to secure copy as a user other than root (login for the destination machine) it gives me the following error; Warning architecture type not detected.. and the file doesn't copy. Verbose output looks like this; Code: debug1: Authentication succeeded (password). debug1: fd 4 setting O_NONBLOCK debug1: fd 5 setting O_NONBLOCK debug1: channel 0: new [client-session] debug1: Entering interactive session. debug1: Sending command: scp -v -t /tmp debug1: channel 0: request exec debug1: channel 0: open confirm rwindow 0 rmax 32768 Warning architecture type not detected.. debug1: channel 0: read<=0 rfd 4 len 0 debug1: channel 0: read failed debug1: channel 0: close_read debug1: channel 0: input open -> drain debug1: channel 0: ibuf empty so I'm presuming its that open confirm line, although I have no idea what it means this is using the following command for example; scp file.txt [email protected]:/tmp Using root, it works fine. Obviously not great. Thing is, it exists on 0 which according to the man pages suggests a successful transfer. Anyone got any suggestions? I'm a bit stumped. Where does the ssh client store the scp conf files?
