SCP Ruby


#1

Hey all,
What would be the best way to use SCP through ruby?
I’m looking to use it to connect to an AFP port on a mac.

THanks,

Will net-sftp work for you? Otherwise you’re looking at a custom
‘expect’ solution (unless someone has already rolled one out that I
don’t know about).

Yes, my bad there earlier - sftp would indeed be easier than scp as sftp
has
ruby bindings, whereas scp does not seem to.

Requirements are that ssh is allowed through the firewall and that you
haven’t made manual edits to the ssh config file (/etc/sshd_config) to
turn
off the sftp subsystem.

That link may help implementing as the library apparently is a bit
sparse in
regards to documentation.

HTH,

Felix

Currently, that’s what I’ve hacked together. But what I’m doing is
connecting to an AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) port. I’ve been told
that I can do it through SCP, so I’ve been using SFTP.

Not sure if it works yet, tho. Testing it now…
