Hi,
when i try to copy i have the error ,what should i do...
[root@Simlab-node2 student]# scp root@10.255.240.139:/home/student/aerofoils/ dumpfile
root@10.255.240.139's password:
scp: /home/student/aerofoils: not a regular file

Do you want to copy files in the aerofoils directory somewhere else? You are trying to copy a directory to a single file.

If dumpfile is a directory then change the command to:
scp -r root@10.255.240.139:/home/student/aerofoils/ dumpfile/

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
