I wanted to ask if anyone has been able to successfully SCP files from a controller to a Mac? I have not had any luck so far. I have remote login enabled on my Mac and can SSH to my Mac from another PC. Not sure what I am missing. When I try to do an SCP file transfer from the controller it appears to start and then fails and shows "Error copying file".
Not sure what I am missing. I know it's not the controller as it works with a Windows SCP server. I'm new to the Mac environment so I don't know the tricks of the trade so to speak.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Can you post your SCP command? Are you providing a username/password?

I have run into this with Macs before. Are you seeing PAM authentication errors in the system log on the Mac? You can fix this by editing the /etc/sshd_config file on the Mac and enabling the PasswordAuthentication option. Change it from this:
and restart the SSHD service:
sudo launchctl stop com.openssh.sshd

I have a new Mac now and this process isn't working on it. Do you know if something changed in the Mac OSX 10.9.x? I have remote login enabled, all users allowed and I changed the ssh_config file. Still seeing the PAM messages.
