same network, from system1 to system2. The resulting file on system2
has the correct file size, but contains some garbled characters, and
doesn't pass the checksum test. Here are the machine stats:
--- SYSTEM 1 ---
Linux system1 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jun 25 13:49:24 EDT 2008
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8b 04 May 2006

--- SYSTEM 2 ---
Linux system2 22.214.171.124-0.21-smp #1 SMP Tue May 6 12:41:02 UTC 2008
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
OpenSSH_4.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005

I'm executing: "scp scripts.tar system2:/home/fischega". Has anyone
ever seen anything like this before? This has me totally baffled.
Re: scp transferring files incorrectly (checksums differ)
What are the garbled characters you mention? They probably contain a clue.
How repeatable is it?
The first thing I would do is try other checksum tools (such as "openssl sha1")
in case the two cksum programs disagree on the same data.
