1. What is SCP? What’s the difference with ‘afp’?

  2. scp is a secure copy protocol that is part of the ssh suite of tools. It’s generally a command-line Unix tool, and instead of using cp to copy files locally, you can use scp to copy files to/from remote servers.

  3. Any chance on updating it to allow the password to be added to the action? Using keygen, I could do this with the standard shell script action, but that doesn’t work with password prompts. I’d like to be able to distribute the action to some of our users & not have to set up a private/public pair in their shell.

  4. Is the return the finder items that were copied? If I add “send to trash” after scp the files are note getting deleted locally.

  5. Is it possible to change the port used for this script? I have several servers that run ssh on a different port than the standard 22.

  6. The port can be changed by putting the appropriate scp command line option in “Other options”. For example, Put -P 2222 to use port 2222.
