He's the exact sequence that I tried with this accompanying debug file.
i) I brought up both Mepis boxes.
box1 - 192.168.1.101 (as determined by running ifconfig)
box2 - 192.168.1.103
The .bashrc on box1 contains a line at the end which says:
echo "hi bob from box 1"
ii) since ssh is not running by default I su root and type
on box 1
iii) on box 2 I verified that ssh was in fact open by typing
and logging in to see the echo prompt above.
I then typed
to come back to the box2 console.
iv) still on box 2 I went to /tmp and ran
date > bob1
to create a file called bob1
v) I then typed
scp -v bob1 192.168.1.101:/tmp/ 1>junk 2>&1
to get the debug file attached.
No file named bob1 appears in /tmp on box1, however, even though I get
prompted for the box1 password and see the .bashrc echo line from box1 on my
Thanks once again in advance for any help you can offer.
