Subject Re: can't get optional scp to work - ant 1.6.2
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2005 20:49:42 GMT
got a couple replies and all are much appreciated.  This one was the
fix for my situation.  For future reference, still not sure what the
problem was since I already had a ant-jsch.jar in my ant.home/lib and
it had .class files in it (more than just a manifest).  Still,
downloading the latest jsch-1.1.23.jar and putting in my ant.home/lib
was the fix.

again - many thx - automation is key and this is a big help!
