Solution to scp missing on Minimal RHEL6 Install

If you choose the minimal installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, you do indeed get a minimal install. It's so minimal that things like wget and scp are missing. It's pretty obvious that yum install wget will get you wget but if you want scp:

yum install openssh-clients


ssh "cat > /tmp/openssh-clients-5.3p1-70.el6.x86_64.rpm" < openssh-clients-5.3p1-70.el6.x86_64.rpm

ssh "cat > /tmp/libedit-2.11-4.20080712cvs.1.el6.x86_64.rpm" < libedit-2.11-4.20080712cvs.1.el6.x86_64.rpm

Thanks! Needed scp installed on rhel 6 minimal install...thx again!

Sweet, just what I was looking for.



Thanks. Strange that I need to install SSH client software to allow another computer to do SCP with me... But it works fine now.
