    I am running OpenVMS 7.3-2 and TCPIP 5.4 and enabled SSH. We have an AIX
    system that needs to send files over and they want to use scp. We have
    public key authentication working as the scripting (from SAP on an AIX 5.2
    system) does not pass password. They get connected, but the files never
    comes over. I noticed that the VMS console messages make it process the
    command file (because for ftp jobs I have it send a console message). The
    logfile in the users directory is this:

    $ Set NoOn
    user job terminated at 27-OCT-2004 11:13:19.20
    Accounting information:
    Buffered I/O count: 74 Peak working set size: 3984
    Direct I/O count: 31 Peak virtual size: 173888
    Page faults: 343 Mounted volumes: 0
    Charged CPU time: 0 00:00:00.04 Elapsed time: 0 00:00:00.17

    So the RCMD in the log file makes it look like SSH is not detecting that the
    remote system is doing a SCP.

    Here is the console messages:

    %%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 27-OCT-2004 11:12:43.61 %%%%%%%%%%%
    Message from user INTERnet on
    INTERnet ACP SSH Accept Request from Host: 152.3.yyy.nnn Port: 51491

    %%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 27-OCT-2004 11:12:46.70 %%%%%%%%%%%
    Message from user
    _FTA77:, User xxx login executing...

    Going from OpenVMS to OpenVMS the SCP command works fine.

    Any ideas?
