    • Ravi Saive says:


      Have you created PSSH host file with IP address of remote host? If yes, try to run the following command to copy file from local to remote location.

      # pscp -h myscphosts.txt -l tecmint -Av wine-1.7.55.tar.bz2 /tmp/

      If you still unable to do so, please post the output of the command here, so that we can help you out..
