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?
