Re: scp command - connection refused
Most likely there is no SSH server running on the remote host, or on a different port number, or its blocked by a firewall.
- ping the machine (to test connectivety)
- see if there is a ssh deamon running
- run the same command but add "-vvv" to get more verbose output.
~$ ps -ef |grep sshd
root 457 1 0 07:32 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/sshd -D
edit: Just noticed you are connecting to "ftp.mywebsite.com". Most likely you can only use FTP to your site. Check with your hosting provider is SSH is available
