access via sudo to. I'm simply trying to scp a file to my home directory.
Other users can do this, so I know that the service is set up. I have
this line in my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:
Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
When I attempt to transfer a file, I am prompted for my password, as
usual, and I get a very fast progress bar (asterisks on the command line),
and my prompt returns. No errors are generated. Problem is that the file
does not transfer. Just to be sure, here is the command I use:
$ scp localfile email@example.com:/home/myname/remotefile
This does not work, and I'm really stumped as to why. I've been reading
man pages and newsgroups for hours and can't find the problem. Anyone
else have this problem?
