recursive scp and directory permissions
Mon Nov 29 17:30:00 GMT 2010
When I use scp -r for recursive copy from Win7 to a remote XP machine,
the properties for the new directory show the message "The permissions
on ... are incorrectly ordered ..." This is for a simple test case.
For an attempted network backup, the process hung up, and I could get
access to the files on the remote machine only after tinkering with the
Google revealed problems with directory permissions using Cygwin with
scp -r, but not in the past few years. What is the current status? Is
there a simple workaround for recursive copy? I tried tar | ssh but
again got the message "The permissions ... are incorrectly ordered."
