Since my original post, the status has changed but let me recap...

The file /home/windon/somefile did have permissions set to have anyone
read it, but I never checked the permissions on the /home/windon
directory.  This has since been corrected.

Next I was getting a permission denied error, which I found to be on the
destination host.  I had to give permissions of 777 to the destination
directory for file transfer to happen.  I find this as a security issue.

Has anyone experienced this, or know of a work around?

Thanks again,
