It seems the certificate-based login doesn't work on both sides of the 
remote connection when using scp?
User on PC A can SSH login to PCs B and C with his certificate, no 
password prompt.
When User on PC A runs a scp operation from B to C he's asked for the 
password on C.

Does the scp actually open a connection from B to C (User doesn't have a 
certificate on B)? This would explain the problem. I hoped to avoid such a 
problem by scping from a third machine that normally has certificate-based 
access to all machines.
