Ipv6 link local and global

I have two systems - Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 9.10
I am trying to scp from 8.04 to 9.10.

Machine 1:

ajeet@blr-1st-1-dhcp371:~$ ifconfig

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1e:4f:e5:b6:de
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::21e:4fff:fee5:b6de/64 Scope:Link

Machine 2:

ajeet@blr-1st-1-dhcp372:~$ ifconfig

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr:00:0C:29:25:C3:78
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe25:c378/64 scope:link

I am trying to scp from Machine1 to Machine2 through:

machine1@> sudo scp -6 feel ajeet@[fe80::20c:29ff:fe25:c378%eth0]:/home/ajeet

It doesnt show any input?

I wonder if that has to do something with Global.

Pls Note: Machine 1 is running on bare metal while Machine2 is a VM.

Hi ajeet,

Very interesting - I tried a similar thing on my machines; and the only thing I differently was to escape the "[" and "]" in your scp command (as per something I read on the web. However I got the exact same problem as you where the command hangs at the shell.

Maybe give this a read:

Maybe try doing a Wireshark trace or something similar on the source machine to see if packets are being transmitted or not?
