"stdin is not a tty" when using SCP


Hey guys.... I used the below command to do a transfer from one server to another & got the message "stdin is not a tty"; however the transfer appeared to go through fine.

Code:
scp -rp -P 22 filename.tar.gz root@204.xxx.xxx.xx:/home/oca/public_html/filename.tar.gz
Is this anything to worry about - do I need to fix it & do the transfer again? ..or should my files be fine?

Thanks!

- You shouldn't SSH to any root account over the network.
- To check if a file is "fine" run md5sum or sha1sum on filename.tar.gz and then do the same on the remote /home/oca/public_html/filename.tar.gz and see if the hashes match.
- SCP / SSH may not need a (pseudo-)terminal but something may expect it regardless on the remote end. Does any global or personal shell resource files contain "stty" or "mesg" ('egrep -r "stty|mesg" /etc/bashrc /etc/profile /etc/profile.d ~/.bashrc ~/.bash_profile;')?

I tried to run what you said but got this..

$ md5sum filename.tar.gz
md5sum: not found
$ sha1sum filename.tar.gz
sha1sum: not found

Don't really quite understand what you mean there sorry.

If
Code:
which md5sum; locate md5sum; find /usr -type f -name md5sum
doesn't find any then the binary is not there. That would be quite surprising.

No need to feel sorry. I just meant that you could execute
Code:
egrep -r "stty|mesg" /etc/bashrc /etc/profile /etc/profile.d ~/.bashrc ~/.bash_profile

Ok I ran that & got this..

Code:
/usr/local/share/python2.6/Tools/scripts/md5sum.py
/usr/ports/sysutils/e2fsprogs/files/patch-tests-md5sum
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/Makefile
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/distinfo
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/files
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/files/patch-Makefile
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/files/patch-md5.c
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/pkg-descr
/usr/ports/sysutils/isomd5sum/pkg-plist
The second command produced..

Code:
egrep: /etc/bashrc: No such file or directory
/etc/profile:# mesg y
egrep: /etc/profile.d: No such file or directory
egrep: /www/virtual/brett/.bashrc: No such file or directory
egrep: /www/virtual/brett/.bash_profile: No such file or directory
Thank You!

Hi,

are you on Linux or any BSD? In BSD it might be just md5 for this application.
