CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2021/09/08 17:31:39 Modified files: usr.bin/ssh : scp.1 scp.c Log message: Use the SFTP protocol by default. The original scp/rcp protocol remains available via the -O flag. Note that ~user/ prefixed paths in SFTP mode require a protocol extension that was first shipped in OpenSSH 8.7. ok deraadt, after baking in snaps for a while without incident
As explained in the OpenSSH Release Notes,
SFTP offers more predictable filename handling and does not require expansion of glob(3) patterns via the shell on the remote side.
