Hmm very odd... I have only used vi to edit the file.

new.list: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators

I ran dos2unix on the file (new.list: ASCII text)

I am still getting :

+ IFS=:
+ read server filepath
+ '[' -n /path/path/filename ']'
+ scp -t server.domain.net_path_path_filename
scp: ambiguous target
+ read server filepath
+ IFS='
+ '[' -n /path/path/filename ']' There appears to be a space after the /filename, is that an issue ?

scp seems to require a complete path for the destination file try:

scp $server:$filepath ./$server${filepath//\//_}

I think I know what I did... I split this into two scripts, one to create the new.list then another to scp the files down and rename them. When I was testing out the first one to ssh I was getting "sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo" so added the -t argument to ssh. Looks like for some reason I also added the -t to my scp cmd in my other script for some reason Smilie

Thank you very much for your time Chubler_XL. I just did a test and everything is working Smilie

current working script is:

#set -x

while read server filepath
  scp "$server:$filepath" ./$server${filepath//\//_}
done < new.list

I am sorry to be a PITA...

I am so close...

I wanted to add "sudo chmod 755" as I was running into permissions issues with trying to scp some files.

set -x

while read server filepath
  ssh -t $server  "sudo chmod 755 $filepath"
  [ -n "$filepath" ] && scp "$server:$filepath" ./FILES/$server${filepath//\//_}
done < new.list

I am getting the following error:
+ ssh -t 'sudo chmod 755 /path/path/filename'
Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.
sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
I also tried with ssh -tt and get
tcgetattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device
