What command do you try to execute? Try specifying the username
explicitly (this may be a good idea anyway if you are going to run it as
$ scp [options] <fileglob> <user>@<remotehost>:<destination_path>
Works for me without the hosts.equiv part.
If you are going to run this as a cron job, consider using rsync to
speed up the transfer.
If you really want to know everything you don't need to know, O'Reilly
has (yet another) book on SSH.
