send scp command with path .

How do I send an scp command?

I cant seem to be able to figure out how to do the characters after the host.

scp -p -r myfile root@host:/path/to/dir/

Code:
   crt.Screen.Send("ssh -oStrictHostKeyChecking=no root@" + host + '\r')
thanks

Hi rleon,

Sorry to appear dense, but I don't understand what you don't understand.

Also, your question is about scp, but then the example code is ssh?

I assume "/path/to/dir/" is a literal string, you would just treat it as such:

Code:
crt.Screen.Send("ssh -oStrictHostKeyChecking=no root@" + host + ":/DirA/DirB/DirC/etc" + '\r')

or

crt.Screen.Send("scp -p -r my file root@" + host + ":/DirA/DirB/DirC/etc" + '\r')

Hi Brenda

lol sorry I wasnt clear

Code:
crt.Screen.Send("scp -p -r -oStrictHostKeyChecking=no ssh_client.tar root@" + host + ":/root" + '\r')
I tried what you suggested but I get an error now.

For some reason its putting an extra character in there.

Code:
# scp -p -r -oStrictHostKeyChecking=no ssh_client.tar root@myhost
[rleon:/home/rleon]# :/root
-bash: :/root: No such file or directory

Hi rleon,

I would say then that the info read from the hosts file includes an extra end of line character that needs stripped!

The extra char(s) are there, you just won't be able to see them since they're non-printing.

This should demonstrate for you what's going on:

Code:
with open('/Users/rleon/Documents/hosts.5') as hosts_:
    for host in hosts_:
        crt.Dialog.MessageBox(host.replace("\r", "[CR]").replace("\n", "[LF]"))
The for-loop in python doesn't strip all end-of-line chars for you, so you have to be aware to remove them from variables so that you can use them in a command line. If the host variable has an LF or a CR in it, it will surely affect the way any command that you craft using the host variable.
