Symptoms

Attempting to use the filetransfer clients scp2 or sftp2 produces a warning: "Error message: child process (ssh2) exited with code 255."

Explanation

The SSH Tectia Client command line clients scp2 and sftp2 use the ssh2 executable for transport. The message occurs when ssh2 is not found along the user's $PATH.

Add /usr/local/bin to the user's $PATH on the client side to solve the issue.
