Thanks for your reply.

While doing SCP I am getting the follwoing write error:

# scp pratik at /etc/config

Host '' is not in the trusted hosts file.
(fingerprint md5 aa:c4:3e:32:ac:42:5b:21:0e:86:7d:b2:21:db:fb:1c)
Do you want to continue connecting? (y/n)
/bin/dbclient: connection to pratik at exited: error writing

I am facing this issue even when I am copying the file to "/etc/config"
directory (Permission is 777). "dbclient" is placed at /bin. Its throwing
error in:

File: packet.c
Function: write_packet ()    --> value of "written" is <0

Any help on this would be appreciated.
