We are trying to use SCP to copy files from one EC2 instance to another.

We have configured our security group profiles to allow port 22 traffic but I dont believe the machine we are copying too, is listening on port 22 and therefore we get connection refused.

Is there some requirement for using SCP to copy between 2 machines like having an SCP client server side app running that is listening on port 22?

What might I be missing here?

Thanks in advance.

SCP uses SSH port.
Can you connect with SSH client to the machine?
