I have problem scp'ing from one system to the other,
both system is running solaris 8, both don't have any
problem running ssh and sftp.

System A is installed with OpenSSH_3.6.1p1.
System B (web03)is installed with F-Secure SSH 3.1.0
(build 8)

I want to scp from System A to System B.
Below is the output of scp -v

SysA# scp -v2 web03:/etc/hosts /tmp

(unspecified), command scp -v -f /etc/hosts

I have run scp specifying it to use ssh version 2
instead of 1, but it still looking for scp1. Both
server don't have scp1 installed. If anyone have
experience this or had similar problem please let me
know (your solution). System A is actually a new
server. We would like to use Openssh on the new
servers, without changing any software configuration
on the old systems.
