Try using the 'expect' script on the terminal

#!/usr/bin/expect
        spawn scp  /usr/bin/file.txt root@<ServerLocation>:/home
        set pass "Your_Password"
        expect {
        password: {send "$pass\r"; exp_continue}
                  }

to run:

expect test.exp 

Hope it helps!

Cheers!
