Problems while copying files

Hi, I just installed WinSCP and tried to copy files from a remote UNIX-Server to my local PC (Win XP).
I got following written in the Logging-File:

< WinSCP: this is begin-of-file
. Sending NULL.
! scp: warning: Executing scp1 compatibility.
! scp: FATAL: Executing ssh1 in compatibility mode failed (Check that scp1 is in your PATH).
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:255

Does anybody know this problem?

Re: Problems while copying files

You must have scp1 binary in path on your server in order to use WinSCP.

This is true, and it does undermine the usefulness of the claim to be SSH2 compatible. I am not sure why WinSCP insists on sending scp .... -f ....
but I can identify that -f specifyier as triggering scp2 only servers to try in vain to find scp1.

scp .... -i ... would look more hopeful if WinSCP could cope with the result.

What is the problem about using scp1?

The Problem is that there are servers without scp1 and where the users don't have the right to run or install scp1!

Sure, you're right. By the way, what is difference between scp2 and scp1? I don't know of any scp2 client.

scp2

prikryl,

I second meierhans' idea. My school's servers only have scp2. is there any plan to support scp2 in the next release?

I have just installed WinSCP and receive the following error message when attempting to copy from the Unix Server to my h drive.

Copying files from remote side failed.

Cannot copy file; Cannot read from the source file or disk.
