Ken, do you have any idea why there is such a difference in the information
in the sshd.log file when the host key is type ssh1 versus ssh2? I really
wanted to go with an ssh2 host key type but I don't know if it will work or
if it's preferable. We're running Multinet 4.4 on Open VMS 7.2-1 and will
be upgrading to Multinet 5 as soon as the shipment arrives.

Subject: Re: trying to use scp to transfer file from Alpha OpenVMS
system with Multinet to Linux system


You have to think of the file on the alpha in a unix-style filesystem
instead of vms-style. The vms device is like the filesystem, followed
by the directory (and subdirectory if any), and then followed by the
filename.extenstion. If the file has no extension, you must inlcude a
terminating period. Based upon the example you gave, try:

scp -v alphauser@alphahostname:/dev/dir/remotefilename.txt localfilename.txt

The only colon is used to separate the remote host specification from
the remote file specification.
