Rcp issue

Hello,

Could anyone help me in explaining what the below command actually means?


Code:
rcp file_name user_name@ukpm01:cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1

I know the rcp format as:-


Code:
rcp filename username@servername:directory_location

But what to do with multiple colons?

I am on SunOS Solaris server.

Thanks
Shubham

Can it be that cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1 is the name of the target file (in de home directory of user username ?


Code:
$ touch cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1
$ ls cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1
cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1
$ rm cgiprod:[tye131.trans]file_name1

Hello,

It must be something else.

Generally, we have IPv6 addressing where hostname is in square brackets - [..]

So I am having little impression that, it might resolve this ip address at run time.

Thanks
