Connection timed out when attempting to transfer data from local machine to azure Sandbox

Explorer

Using gitbash on windows, I'm attempting to transfer a file from my local downloads folder into azure following the instructions here:

http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/learning-the-ropes-of-the-hortonworks-sandbox/

Command:

<code>scp -P 2222~/Downloads/Restaurants.csv cwarren@168.62.237.240:/cwarren

I have verified that the host is correct.

Error:

ssh connect to host 168.62.237.240 port 2222: Connection timed out lost connection

If you're on azure the port may just be port 22. Port 2222 is for Sandbox users. Try without the port argument.

I am a sandbox user. The port doesn't seem to be working however.

You said that you were working on Azure - when I referred the Sandbox I should have specified the local VM (VirtualBox/VMWare).

try these and let me know the results:

ssh cwarren@168.62.237.240

or

scp ~/Downloads/Restaurants.csv cwarren@168.62.237.240:/cwarren

Let me clarify - I have deployed the Sandbox on azure - not using a local VM.

Cameron did you try the commands above? I tried ssh on the IP you provided and it connected and asked for a password. I believe the commands above should work for you.

The path to ~/Downloads/Restaurants.csv is probably wrong. You just need to locate wherever you downloaded the file to and point to that path instead of ~/Downloads/Restaurants.csv

I would either just move the file or trying using 'sudo' or if you're on Windows try opening the gitbash program 'As Administrator'. It may resolve your issues. Windows can be finicky with things like this.

That worked - but now I get error scp: /cwarren Permission denied

Thank you.

Same problem here, on my Mac OS 10.11. First error was "Connection timed out lost connection".

I found that the ~/Downloads/ path was referring to a path on the VM in Azure, not my local path.

So I jump the command ssh <username>@<host>-p 22; and retry. Now the path seems correct but I got the error "Permission denied"

How did you resolve it, @Cameron Warren ?

Thanks
