I am using a Macbook SSH terminal and generated RSA key pairs and uploaded remote
id_rsa.pub with approved permissions. I can connect with remote Apache web server. I can create, open, move, modify and on preliminary inspection can manage files on the web server, no problem ... and generate no error messages.
Surprisingly I can not
scp a folder nor document from my desktop to the remote server. Nor can I
scp a folder or document from the remote server to my desktop. Each time I receive the error message:
stdin: is not a tty
scp command to or from the remote web server does not work with either absolute or relative file location references.
My standard syntax looks like this:
From local host:
scp -rp ~/Desktop/foldername firstname.lastname@example.org:~/public_html
From remote host:
scp -rp email@example.com:~/public_html/foldername ~/Desktop/
It appears to be an issue with the
stdin: is not a tty error message.
What's going on?
If this error is preventing the file transfers, how do I resolve the
stdin: is not a tty?
