Cisco SCP getting privileged denied

I was trying to SCP a file toward a Cisco 2960S.

scp c2960s-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE6.bin peter@
Privilege denied.

This was already configured, but it didn’t work

username peter privilege 15 secret 5 ****
aaa new-model
aaa session-id unique
ip ssh version 2
ip scp server enable

Only after adding the following the SCP was successful

aaa authentication login default local
aaa authorization exec default local none 

it worked, as you can see:

scp c2960s-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE6.bin peter@ng-c2960s-a1-cs1:c2960s-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE6.bin
c2960s-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE6.bin                               100%   14MB  37.7KB/s   06:17

    I have everything set up the same way you do with the additional AAA commands, and I still can’t scp to/from my 3560. I must be losing my mind…what am I missing?!
