Re: scp -- plz help

1) You are not dumb. You were smart enough to come here and ask a question.

2) syntax

scp sourcefile hostname:/target_Directory

example

scp -p /root/* secondsystem:/rootback

scp -p /root/* 10.0.0.10:/rootback

this will copy preserving permissions all files in the /root directory to a folder named /rootback on a second system.

You will/may be prompted for a password.

Re: scp -- plz help

Dear SEP and All

i tried (and succeeded, thanks Forum :) )

# scp file 10.0.0.9:~/

but, then the destination(10.0.0.9) machine always asks/promts for password, ok.

Is is possible that the destination machine dont ask password every time I run scp. ? if then please kindly let me know the step-by-step procedure.

Thanks n Regards

Re: scp -- plz help

attaching a document on how to set up password free scp/ssh/sftp connectivity.

X windows is not needed in this word format document. Its very important to pay attention to permissions instructions.
