SCP file transfer between Hortonworks Sandbox to Windows local host

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

 

I just installed virtualbox ad hortonworks sanbox.  I want to copy files between my local host and Sandbox using SCP.  I used this command and getting errors.

 

[root@sandbox-hdp ~]# scp -P 2222 root@sandbox-hdp.hortonworks.com:/root/saketh/sample1.txt C:\Users\satvi\Desktop\test\sample1.txt
ssh: connect to host sandbox-hdp.hortonworks.com port 2222: Connection refused
 
root@sandbox-hdp ~]# scp -P 4200 root@sandbox-hdp.hortonworks.com:/root/saketh/sample1.txt C:\Users\satvi\Desktop\sample1.txt
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
 

Thanks

Hello

 

Make sure you configure in Windows hosts file for "sandbox-hdp.hortonworks.com" with a proper IP address

Hi @Saketh 

 

If you are new to the HDP Sandbox and you don't understand what @Daming Xue is referring to, I highly recommend you review the tutorial Learning the Ropes of the HDP Sandbox and specifically the subsection Map Sandbox IP to Your Desired Hostname in the Hosts File as the procedure is described in detail there.
