On my routers I have enabled SSH, which works just fine.
However making use of the enabled secure copy server with
ip scp server enable
seems a bit diffcult to me.
The scp server seems to run on the router, however I'm missing a tool to access it. Both, WinScp on Windows and scp on Linux fails to connect.
Any hints on how to get this to work?
I like to use scripts to automate updating and getting the inventory of my devices, as well as debugging on a bulk of routers at once. For this purpose I'd like to use SSH, because of the needed confidentiality. However, I hate to always have to specify username and password for every single session. Is there a way to exchange keys and signatures, so the session can be established automagically?
Currently I'm working with PuTTY's plink on Windows, because it has the feature to specify the password with a command line switch. However, I don't like to save passwords in my scripts.
