You need an AFS token on the server side.
scp uses SSH. You in effect logged in to the remote host
using a password, which I assume is a local password.
If you have Kerberos 5 at your shop, SSH and SSHD could be
configured to use GSSAPI and can forward Kerberos tickets
which can be used by SSHD with pam_afs_session to get a AFS
token for you.
