Smile PCLOS 2007 & FC9: can't copyy files from FC9 box to home PCLOS 2k7 via ssh


Hello everyone. This is my first post. I am using pclos 2k7 from home. I have files at work on a fc9 box. I am trying to connect to my company's ssh environment from home.

$ ssh name@domain.com <<-- seems to work just fine.


From there I have to ssh user@fc9 to get access to my fc9 box at work.

I tried to copy files from my box directly to my pclos 2k7 box at home, but it looked like I copied it to the shell environment instead. I used the following command :


scp -r user@pcshell:/home/user/folder1 .

I guess the 'ssh environment' is a box that allows the tunnel connection for ssh sessions. So anyways, when I do a 'ls', I see that I have copied the 'folder1' in my home directory of the 'ssh environment' box. But I would like this folder and it's contents to be copied to my home pclos box.


I tried then using this command:

scp -r user@pcshell.domain.com:~/folder1/ redla@192.168.2.104:~/folder1/

It asks for the user's password. I provide it but then it just hangs.


I have a DSL connection going into a linksys router providing dhcp leased ip addresses. My pclos is on a laptop with a wireless connection.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Why not SSH to the machine the files are on, then go backwards to your box

Login to the target box and then scp from there, calling your box at work

me@home> scp me@work:/path/ .
