When I execute the script by hand, it completes without any problems.
When I let a cronjob handle it, it doesn't scp the zip file to the remote server.
I don't get any errors in /var/log/auth.log or /var/log/messages
Anyone has any ideas on how to fix this up?

We had a similar problem with scp if I remember right. The problem was the remote server where a message was echoed during login with ssh (some echo stuff in the .profile or something like this). It seemed to be that scp got this echo-message too and then failed to operate. After removing the echo commands everything worked fine.

Note: I may be wrong, its long time ago.
