The debian is running as a guest of virtualbox. So far so good, but SmarTTY running on Wndows cannot scp any files to it without any messages. BTW, there is a scp menu in SmarTTY.

Regards!

The debian is running as a guest of virtualbox.

And the host OS is ?
Without a example of exactly how you are typing the 'scp' command it is
hard to guess why it is not working, ;
Example : (this is the command I used, and it worked, to transfer a file named "scp-output.txt " from
Debian on a VM , to the host. and my home dir /home/garry )
Code: Select all
garry@debian:~$ scp scp-output.txt garry@192.168.42.207:/home/garry/
garry@192.168.42.207's password:
scp-output.txt          100%    180    0.2KB/s   00:00   
garry@debian:~$ 


There are more examples on using the command here:
http://www.hypexr.org/linux_scp_help.php
Also :
Code: Select all
 man scp

SYNOPSIS
scp [-346BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
[-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
[[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2



Not sure about "smartTTY", never heard of it, I just type the command in at the prompt, as needed. If I am not sure, a quick search to find a example of the correct syntax or SYNOPSIS
============= another example===
This uses 'scp' to copy the images from the PC to the server:
Code: Select all
$ scp *.JPG myusername@serverIP:/path/to/destination/directory/images/
myusername@serverIP's password:

I did a search to see what smarTTY is,Key words: ""what is smarTTY""
Sorry, I can not help on this, but that
explains why I had never heard of it.

thanks for your quick answer ! As you suggested i downloaded a scp.exe and use it to upload file. I works as a charm. Maybe my problem is due to SmarTTY's setup.
