open Terminal and start scp

Recommended Posts

I want to update a directory on my Raspberry PI and I want to use scp for this. 


I've got a keyword which initiates a Run NSAppleScript action. This applescript launches Terminal and it should enter a command. But it won't open Terminal.


on alfred_script(q)
  tell application "Terminal"
	do script "scp -r /path/to/folder pi@"
  end tell
end alfred_script


This Applescript action works flawlessly when used with a normal ssh command like "ssh user@server.com". But it does not work with scp. Any ideas?
