I remember seeing long ago someone who tried to solve a "Corrupted MAC on input" error with scp. This is the culprit.

It is a guess of course but a pretty good one.

If that original poster is around, can u please confirm whether one of the boxes is FreeBSD?

I have mostly seen this problem during inward xfers to FreeBSD boxes.

Can u plz try the above solution and verify if the problem goes away?
