The uncompatibility is not about the presence of the components. At
least the older versions of Tectia product family do not support OpenSSH
SCP. Basicly SCP is just an implementation of rcp and OpenSSH and SSH
Corp. have done it differently. I have a vague recollection that the
latest versions of Tectia product family can be confiugured to support
OpenSSH SCP. SCP is not a standard where as SFTP is (or at least a draft

And some of our customers decline to install OpenSSH because they use
commercial products.
