This has come up before.. F-Secure uses scp2  which is scp over sftp
subsytem.  Where OpenSSH only supports scp which is rcp over ssh.

I suggest you check out the sftp client provided in the latest release of
OpenSSH for transfer compatiblity with F-Secure.  When time permits I'm
sure someone will write an scp2 replacement for OpenSSH, but I believe our
sftp client needs improvement before we write an scp2 replacement.
