[beagleboard] Can't add files using Eclipse

Hello all, I'm trying to do some development / cross compiling using Eclipse
3.8 on my Ubuntu PC. The Beaglebone is running ubuntu. I can connect using
SSH but the problem is I can't create files or directories.

Does this:

:~$ touch test.file
:~$ scp test.file ubuntu@


I am stuck with the same problem. Did you found any solution??
