I can SSH into remote server just fine using private key authentication with prompt for passphrase.
However I'm getting permission denied when I try to SCP a file using the same passphrase. Here's my output:

I've searched for answers but can't find quite the same problem or am just being thick. Either way any help is much appreciated. Cheers!
