Thanks VERY much, Antti!  We've been working on this problem since Friday
with no success.  I'll do some testing with the OpenSSH 'sftp' client in our
scripts to see if can make it work for our needs.

Ok here's what I found in testing:

OpenSSH's scp seems not be SSH2 compatible
OpenSSH's sftp seems to work without any problems (use this)

I'm still puzzled how the scp let's you authenticate your self.. but the
problem seems to be still on the openssh side.

Hope this helped,
