Topic "Scp and whitespaces in filenames copied from linux to win system"

Author Message


I tried to copy file (mp3) form linux to my windows system. The filename of mp3 had some whitespaces in name like ' Usher-Burn.mp3''. It failed saying that filename doesn't exist. I renamed the filename and it was ok (no whitespaces on beginning).
I user SCP protocol.
PS I have noticied that SFTP was about 25 % faster than SCP protocol (example: 100 kb/s with SCP and 150 kb/s with SFTP).

Thanks for info. I'll fix it. With SFTP protocol you should be able to download the file.
