Okay, let's break this down a bit for clarification:
- The sshd service is running on another host that has the file you want.
- You are running the command of scp on the AIX machine.
- You are trying to copy the file from that one host to another and not to the AIX machine you are on.
- You get the above error when you issue the scp command from the AIX machine.
Are these all correct? If so, my thought would be that there is no ssh server installed on the destination host. The quick solution would be to log onto the destination host directly and scp
from the source host directly to the destination host (provided that the ssh and/or scp utilities have been installed.)
If the above list is *not*
correct, let us know what is incorrect.
HTH. Let us know.
