I am trying to use the scp command to copy a file from a cluster at my university to my local machine (using cygwin). I am typing:
I keep getting the error:
scp: .: not a regular file
I thought it may be a permissions error, so I logged into my account on the cluster with ssh and checked the permissions. They were all readable.
I also tried putting a dot at the end of the command:
It generated the same error.
Does anyone know what this error means and it's origin?
