I'm currently looking into the rclone documentation and noticed there is no support for scp. Is there any plan to include this in a feature release? If it is not planed to be included what features does rclone currently miss what scp can offer?
Thanks a lot for the help.
hello and welcome to the forum,
no support for scp
there is a huge backlog of requests to add new protocols/providers
you are welcome to open an issue at https://github.com/rclone/rclone/issues
tho rclone supports sftp
Thank you for your quick respponse.
I have been closer looking into the differences between rclone and scp. So far rclone sftp offers a lot which makes scp obsolent.
Here is a mapping overview:
scp -c cipher ----> rclone --sftp-use-insecure-cipher (Not recommended)
scp -F ssh_config ----> no support to read any ssh_config file and seems to complicated to implement
scp -i identity_file ----> rclone --sftp-pubkey-file
scp -l limit -----> rclone --sftp-chunk-size
scp -o ssh_option ----> no support to read any ssh_config file and seems to complicated to implement
scp -P port ----> rclone --sftp-port
scp -p preserve modification time ----> Will be preserved by default? But could be set --sftp-set-modtime
scp -r recursive .----> rclone does recurisve copies by default. Can be enable for ls via -R
scp -S program -----> rclone --sftp-subsystem
scp -v verbose ----> rclone --verbose or -vv
Did I miss anything? Since ssh config files or ssh options are in general not supported are there some features in rclone which compensate some of the configuration options?
Note that the scp protocol is being phased out :
That's rhel but I think I read that it's coming from the openssh project.
