Try not to use scp. Please study the scp protocol, so that you know
how your tools actually work. I think you'll quickly find that scp
is a pretty bad protocol, and that SFTP would be a better choice.

Study the protocol. And as Bert pointed out, how do you know that
it's the local scp process which detects an error?
