Unable to transfer pcap file via SCP

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!

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

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@192.168.152.1:2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap

That's it! Thank you!

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

From the cli

cd /usr/local/tmp/

scp2 vr vr-default
2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap admin@192.168.152.1:2016-03-03_09-49-39_rx_tx.pcap

That should work
