Problems with scp (putty edition)

Question:

I am using the putty edition of scp (PSCP.EXE) and get an error message 'Local to local copy not supported'.

I am entering the command like this:

c:\temp>scp archive.zip myuser@delphifaq.com

Why do I get the error message, what does it mean?

Answer:

You need to specify the target directory. The correct syntax is

c:\temp>scp archive.zip myuser@delphifaq.com:/tmp/

..if you want to copy your file to the /tmp folder on that machine.
