Hello I am trying to connect to a ABCI System User Environment and I cannot perform a scp to save my life. I have tried two approaches; 1) is use unbuntu linux bash command for windows (the app you have to install from the window store). and the second approach is with WinSCP and Putty. I have generated a public key and loaded up on the ABCI system. And I can tunnel into the server and login correctly and view files. But when I try to upload a zip file to the server I get denied access. Can someone help me set up the WinSCP correctly to tunnel into the server?

Here is the information that I have

For the tunnel ssh

local port: 11022
remote host and port: es.abci.local:22
remote port: 22 

For a session

hostname: as.abci.ai

And in putty this is all set up and works perfectly. As I followed this directions https://portal.abci.ai/docs/en/02/ But I still cannot scp a file into my local folder how can I do that? Thank you for any help with this.

Oh and I do know for putty scp I need to use this instead of the typical scp

pscp -scp -P 110022 myFile.zip myusername@localhost:/place to copy to/

I found out how to get the logs from WinSCP These are the log output

    So are you able to update the ZIP file anyhow? – Martin Prikryl May 21 '19 at 5:44

    The host you are connecting to is localhost:11022. If you can connect to it over ssh, then scp should work the same.. unless the path you need to save is not writeable by your username. – Darius May 21 '19 at 5:45
  • I am sorry I meant upload. I have been trying to set up Winscp but am a bit lost in what to set. I tried many different combinations. – MNM May 21 '19 at 5:48
  • You still didn't really explain, if you have any reason to believe it should even work. Did you talk to your server administrator? – Martin Prikryl May 21 '19 at 5:55
  • Yes but he wont help set up winscp. He said if I can ssh in then i should scp in, which i know is true so its a issue of how I put in the settings in winscp i think – MNM May 21 '19 at 6:15

I figured out the answer for this, I was a lot of trial and error changing the setting on WinSCP I appricate everyone help on this. I will describe how I set up every thing.

  1. Make a pub/private key with putty gen.
  2. Load that up on the ABCI webpage
  3. In WinSCP set up information.
  4. Hostname: es.abc1.local:22 with port number 11022
  5. In advance settings go to Connection->Tunnel
  6. Hostname: as.abci.ai; port number 22; local tunnel port 11022
  7. Add you private key from puttygen

Then you should be all set.
