scp protocol error

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
When trying to copy a large number of files, scp crashes
and gives:

scp: 'file name'
protocol error: Expected Control Record

And the transfer stops.

Any thoughts on this?

Yeah, it probably shouldn't do that.

Now, if you had mentioned which SSH software and version(s) you're using,
and which platforms you're running on, and if there's anything odd about
the filenames, and if the copy works for the files individually or in small
batches, then the thought might have been a little more specific...
