Archive with Secure Copy

Unanswered Question
Jul 30th, 2007

Hi all,

I have been using automatic archive configurations with TFTP and it works great. However, I'd like to switch to SCP as the file transfer mechanism to improve security on the router and for the file server. I have a test router configured with:


path scp://user:[email protected]/file

time-period 5

This should automatically archive every five minutes with the specified username and password. However, it does not automatically archive, but I can manually archive by typing archive config. I visually watch the router successfully log in to the SCP server and put the file in the correct directory. Is SCP not supported for automatic archive or am I missing something?


I have this problem too.
