Unable to scp to my server running cygwin
I have a Windows 2003 server with Cygwin 2.510.2.2.
scp works fine when I run the command on the scp server.
see correction below:
scp works fine when I run the command on the cygwin server.
When I run scp on a linux machine using cygwin as the destination, the
-bash-2.05b$ scp -p "test1.txt" ITG_user <at>
ITG_user <at> 10.232.248.5's password:
bash: no job control in this shell
ITG_user <at> drwlsw17 ~
$ /bin/ls #(here is where it locks up. I tried /bin/ls, then ^c)
Killed by signal 2.
As you can see, the source does not have a dns entry for drwlsw17, so I
OK, same result.
Please use POSIX paths (i.e. /cygdrive/d/junk/test1.txt).
Any ideas would be helpful.
Here is a URL to my cygcheck.out file:
It appears you're getting an old version of bash when you login via scp.
Are you saying this because of the prompt: -bash-2.05b$
This is on the remote Linux server, not cygwin
So it is. OK, never mind.
It'sI tried, and I get a good ssh session and able to source .bash_profile
not obvious from your cygcheck output where that's coming from but you may
want to check where '/etc/passwd' has set your home directory and if you can
get there with a simple ssh to that machine
(since your home directory isan admin user with a network drive was used to generate the first file,
here is the cygcheck file generated by ITG_user:
clearly a network drive, possibly with restrictive permissions that could
also be causing you problems).
Looks OK. Maybe try running the client session and the server session with
verbosity/debug on. That might help point you to the problem.
