How to transfer file from droplets 1 to droplets 2?

I try to transfer the “test” folder from droplet (IP: 111.22.33.444) to another server (droplet 2 IP:222.99.77.444) using command shell script scp, then I get an error like:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).
lost connection

my script:

scp -P 333 -r /test-web/test root@222.99.77.444:/web

is there a syntax error or is there a missing configuration?

Hello, @yohan44

The error:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).
lost connection

occurs because you currently have the password authentication disabled and you can only use the public key to connect to droplet number two. You can copy the key from droplet one to droplet two and this will work.

This article will help you to achieve this:

Hope that this helps!
