Is there something else that needs to be set for the scp when the file exists?

I do not see any property, or does some setting exist on the server that controls this?

If the file exists on the server, does the scp overwrite the file?

Windows 12 to a AIX server.

Maybe permissions on AIX prevent this, as I know there is a profile setting that determines the permissions on create file.

I don't know about your particular AIX case. I would think the typical case, if (for example) uploading to a file that already exists on a typical Linux computer in a directory owned by your SSH user account, that it would overwrite the existing file.
