I am using PSCP to transfer a file from a Linux server to a local

error: 'ssh_init: Network error: Cannot assign requested address'.
Putty works fine, WinSCP also works fine. 

A favourite way to provoke this message is to try to connect to port 0.

Guess: is it possible that you've accidentally saved port 0 to PuTTY's
Default Settings? The different PuTTY tools have different implicit
session loading behaviour, which might explain why PuTTY works but PSCP
doesn't.

Thank you Matt for asking the question and Jacob for providing the solution.
I just added "-P 22" in the command line and we are back in business.  :)
