I've been doing some work on one of our school's servers (as a student), and I've been having some trouble scp-ing files in and out. Trying to push/pull a file from the server while logged in on my local machine
user@localHost$ scp <user>@<schoolServ>:<file> .
doesn't work and causes the terminal to hang indefinitely. However, I have no problems ssh-ing to the remote machine, and trying the transfer from the other direction
user@schoolServ$ scp <file> <user>@<localHost>:~/.
works fine. I've tried three different machines (OS X & Linux) to no effect. Any ideas what might cause this to happen?
