SCP and SFTP for IPv6

You can take advantage of the SCP and SFTP client applications to provide a secure alternative to TFTP for transferring sensitive switch information, such as configuration files and login information, between the switch and an administrator workstation. Because SCP and SFTP run over an encrypted SSH session, you can use a secure SSH tunnel to:
  • Transfer files and update E Switch software images.

  • Distribute new software images with automated scripts that make it easier to upgrade multiple switches simultaneously and securely.
