I am hoping that someone here can help me work through an issue that I am having trying to restore some files.  This is an old backup, maybe 1 year old and I have just installed Mageia 3 on a new machine.  I have gotten to the point whereby I can see my previous back ups, which were done from the local machine and I am trying to restore to the local machine too.  To begin with I am just trying to restore a single file.  The command is below, along with the error messages.

Seems that the first command, that beings with /usr/bin/ssh is expecting a password, or at least that what happens when I try it manually.  Not really sure how to proceed from here.
Any help would be much appreciated, also this is just a personal back up and I don't have too much backuppcPC / Linux knowledge.
