    Write Permission to Client's directory


    I'm trying to copy files over to the host's directory but it seems I don't have the permission to do so. I'm currently logged as root in my server, how would I edit my host's file to include write permission?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Just because you are root on one machine doesn't give you root permissions on another (unless someone seriously broke security protocols). So, please show your code to write the files on the other machine? Also, is this via an NFS or Samba shared directory, or other?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    This is via SCP, what I did was create a temp folder on the host's directory and copy files there then move to the root directory. Quite simple really. But changing the subject here, I've visited the Openvpn setup on Debian but they didn't tell how to create a TUN/TAP file. I'm not sure if anyone here knows about this.
