Topic "scp: error: unexpected filename: Phototools%2D%20B/W%20Light%20%2008.xml"

Author Message


during a commander-style GUI copy from Windows 7 64-bit to a CentOS 7.1 server, the follow error message is reported, and the copy is aborted:

scp: error: unexpected filename: Phototools%2D%20B/W%20Light%20%2008.xml

But the file named Phototools%2D%20Angles%20Light%2001.xml in the same directory will successfully copy.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
