Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to download a file from root user, which is not directly accessible from ssh. I have installed zssh on my local machine and the server.

This is where I'm at:

zssh user@server
login as root
sz file
zssh > cd local/directory

And now nothing happens; no file is created and it's stuck in the ssh session with a blank line. What am I missing?
