in reply to How do I debug a problem with Net:SSH

you might want to check the errstr Attribute from your $scp->scp() call.
From docs:
... Returns false and sets the errstr attribute if there is an error.

So something like the following perhaps untested
$scp->scp( "/export/home/xorl/websterproject/xferlist.txt", "/tmp/websterproject_xfer.txt" ) or die $scp->{errstr}."\n";

    Thanks but now I'm almost as perplexed as before.

    cp: cannot stat `/export/home/xorl/websterproject/xferlist.txt': No such file or directory

    Thinking I might need to tell it to look on the remote box I tried $scp->scp("", "/tmp/websterproject_xfer.txt"); and I got

    Warning: something's wrong at ./ line 7. (which is the scp line)

    I then tried using the alternate $scp->get() syntax and got same something's wrong warning :(

    Now just to be sure I ssh'ed to the remote box and made sure the file exists, stat showed that the file exists with 644 permissions and my Uid and Gid.

    Now I have more information than before, but I feel more lost in the dark than ever. *sigh*

    Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks again
