    I know it is a little late, but I had this same problem and here is what finally worked for me.

    I downloaded Cygwin to my machine and used it with a “scp” command

    me@mycomputer /cygdrive/c/
    $ scp -P 2222 ./test.txt root@

    it will ask you about the RSA token – press y and hit enter and then
    it will ask you for the root password (hadoop)
