Pretty new to Linux here. Trying to get a better grip on the OS. Here is my problem -
I have a question about the impact of removing ssh_config file from a Linux box. I was having some cipher mismatch problems while trying to SCP files from my Linux box to my Mac. In trying to play around with things and get it working, I created a backup of my ssh_config file and deleted the original ssh_config file, and then the scp transfer worked.
I was a bit surprised at this as I was under the impression that ssh_config is used by my SSH client on the Linux box and ideally the scp should have failed without it. Since SCP worked after deleting it, then maybe my understanding of the signifiance of the ssh_config file was wrong.
Can you please help me understand how the scp transfer is working even without the ssh_config file?
