i am trying to set up scp transfer between 2 boxes 1 is running solaris 2.7 and is a standalone workstation the other is running solaris 2.6 and is part of a cluster

i can scp files between the workstation and the cluster box no problem but from the cluster to the workstation i get the following

root@robin's password:
sftp> ld.so.1: sftp-server: fatal: libncurses.so.5: open failed: No such file or directory
                                                                                          Killed
                                                                                                Warning: child process (ssh2) exited with code 0.

running it in debug i get .........

root@robin's password:
debug: Ssh2Common/sshcommon.c:311/ssh_common_special: Received SSH_CROSS_AUTHENTICATED packet from connection protocol.

hmm, probably the ncurses library you used when building ssh on the 2.7 machine is not in the normal places? (or the machine you built ssh on for the 2.7 machine had ncurses, and the cluster system does not).

look in /usr/lib/libncurses* and /usr/local/lib/libncurses*

if it happens to be in /usr/local/lib, then you'll need to add that path to your $LD_LIBRARY_PATH before running (or link in symbolically to /usr/lib, which may be easier)

do you need sftp support?
if not remove the Subsystem sftp line in sshd_config, and restart sshd

What version of SSH are you running and how did you install it?

Also, the title of your question is about "scp problems" when if fact you are demonstrating a sftp problem.  These use different mechanisms for the file transfer.  If ssh works fine, then scp should also work fine.
