Hi there,

I'm evaluating Tectia Server with a view to enable a UNIX machine to SCP of SFTP files on a routine (8 files per minute) basis to a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine and I'm having some problems accessing SCP or SCPG3 through a remote terminal.

I have the server set up so the (default) services are all allowed for initial testing.

I am able to connect to the server using PuTTY and the Tectia Client ( and I am able to transfer files using the Tectia Secure File Tansfer Client; however, I need to be able to receive files via SCP or SFTP from a UNIX box running OpenSSH.

When I try to run "scp" in the terminal I get the following error:

Failed to create auditing handle to server

When I try and run "scpg3" I get:

'scpg3' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I've searched through the installation directories of Tectia Server and I can't find "scpg3" as an executable; should I be able to?

Hi Owen,

Some time ago I have tried to reproduce this issue, but I couldn't. However, today I got similar (yet different) issue when using OpenSSH scp towards Tectia SSH server on Windows. I tried to find out what is causing it. Unfortunately, the issue was gone when I restarted the Tectia SSH Server on Windows.

Does re-start of SSH server also help your issue?

Regarding the scpg3. If you have bought the Tectia SSH server, then it comes with 3 packages: common, client and server. You need to install the client package too.

What does the command:

rpm -qa | grep -i tectia

print on your server?
