Hi, Keiron

I definitely expected the second approach to work. If I can SSH into A
(cvs.apache.org, or icarus), and I can SSH into B (xml.apache.org, among
others, or daedalus), and I can scp to both, then I ought to be able to scp
between A and B from my machine. But it aborted every time I tried it.

My problem with the first approach is that SSH uses passwords also, but as a
convenience I have the password set to nothing so I don't have to enter it
every time. What happened was icarus asked me for a password and I had none
to give. So that failed.

Further investigation is required. :-)

Hi Arved,

I ssh'ed into A (thats cvs.apache.org right?) and did an scp to B. As I
use password access only then I had to enter a password. It sounds like
you are using key access, in which case wouldn't you need you key for B
setup in A?

 From you machine you should still be able to do
scp a:/home/... b:/www/...
and I think it will use the keys from you machine which are apparently
