I'm encountering some strange stuff here when trying to scp a file from one server to another. What I have are two freshly installed machines, w/ public ip addresses. I'm trying to scp a file from machine B to machine A. The scp command hangs and then eventually times out. When I look at netstat on machine A, I see the attempted connection, but, it appears as though it's coming from a different IP address.
The ip it's coming from is from another, well-known machine on our network, definitely in no way related to either of these two machines. I can scp from other machines to server A with no problem, this definitely appears to be an issue w/ machine B.
Anyone seen this kind of weirdness?
