Are you talking about the "stagein" and "stageout" files (configured
with qsub's -W arg), or delivering the stdout/stderr of the job
(configured with qsub's -o, -e, -k, and -j options)?

The logic for delivery of stdout/stderr files is as follows:

First, if the file(s) are to be delivered to a local filesystem, then
'cp' is used.  If the file(s) are to be delivered to a remote filesystem
covered by MOM's $usecp option, then use 'cp'.

Otherwise, if ./configure was run with --with-scp, then MOM attempts to
use 'scp', else use 'rcp'.

When using 'scp', MOM retries with 'mom_rcp' if the scp fails.

Note that CVS just changed last week, it will no longer fallback to

If not officially, we'll do _something_.
