Transfer files from one linux server to another linux server

scp from one remote server to another remote server

If you are trying to transfer files from one remote server to another remote server using scp and you are getting permission denied error, here is the solution for you.

Suppose you are using system A and you want to transfer files from system B to system C and you are trying
scp user1@systemB-IP:/location/sourcefile user2@systemC-IP:/location/targetFile
But you are getting permission denied error

You should use
ssh user1@systemB-IP scp /location/sourceFile user2@systemC-IP:/location/targetFile
But still you are getting permission denied error, try
ssh -t user1@systemB-IP scp /location/sourceFile user2@systemC-IP:/location/targetFile
Example :
IP of system A - 192.168.0.11
IP of system B - 192.168.0.12
IP of system C - 192.168.0.13

Source file location on system B - /opt/lampp/htdocs/install.log
Destination location on system C - /opt/logs

You are log in to system A and you want to transfer file from system B to system C. Run following command :
ssh -t root@192.168.0.12 scp /opt/lampp/htdocs/install.log root@192.168.0.13:/opt/logs


Solution : 2
Save public key file of your system (system A) into system B and system C.

scp $HOME/.ssh/filename.pub root@192.168.0.12:/root/.ssh/authorized_keys

scp $HOME/.ssh/filename.pub root@192.168.0.13:/root/.ssh/authorized_keys

and now run
scp root@192.168.0.12:/opt/lampp/htdocs/install.log root@192.168.0.13:/opt/logs
