Unable to transfer pcap file via SCP

  • 1.  Unable to transfer pcap file via SCP

    Posted 03-04-2016 12:42
    Hey there,

    I'm trying to transfer a pcap file from an X770 to my PC using SCP2 but I'm unable to do it.
    TFTP is not an option since it's unreliable and has failed multiple times during transfer.
    Tried also by connecting to the switch via SFTP but can't seem to access anything except the /config folder.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    I believe you have to cd to the directory /usr/local/tmp/ then scp the file.

    From the cli

    cd /usr/local/tmp/

    scp2 vr vr-default
    2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap admin@192.168.152.1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener">admin@192.168.152.1:2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap

    That should work

    Petar,

    It seems SCP is only copying from the /usr/local/cfg directory and will not allow you to enter a different directory. Can you try copying the file (with cp) to /usr/local/cfg and then transferring from there?

    cd /usr/local/cfg
    cp /usr/local/tmp/2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap /usr/local/cfg/2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap
    scp vr "VR-Default" 2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap admin@192.168.152.1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener">admin@192.168.152.1:2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap[/code]

    Petar.

    With WinSCP. Can you access all directorys or /usr/local/cfg only?

    I login via WinSCP with admin user but I can only see ..../cfg.
    I have no priviledge to change to an upper directory.

    Am I wrong?

    thanks
    Alex

    Hi Jeremy,

    Already did that and you can see the result in my OP.

    That's it! Thank you!

    I was also able to SFTP to the switch with WinSCP and see the file.
