Ssh & scp
Today I had an issue using SSH and SCP.
I was able to use ssh to log into a machine but could not use scp to remotely copy a file from it. In the end I discovered that the scp stopped because I had echo statements in my .bashrc
Is there anything I can do to allow these statements to print, or an explanation as to why they cause scp to fail?

Seem to be an old know bug/problem:
scp [Archive] - FedoraForum.org
In general, the suggestion is: Remove the echo if you can.
thanks for response, will leave as is.
