I'm a nuby who needs help solving a problem trying to copy from
multiple remote servers

I need to ssh into a remote machine (Machine X).  Once in Machine X  I
need to SCP a file from machine Y. I'm not sure how to do this as it
seems that the process hangs while waiting for the first ssh to exit.
I've tried:

system("bash ./sample.sh " ) --(which uses a simple shell script to
execute the above described commands)

I've also tried `ssh user / 10.10.0.1 `-- which hangs untill an exti is
entered.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

Beth
