FTP or SCP to Cloud ESA

We are in the process of migrating from ESA appliances on-site to Cloud ESA.  We have exported configurations (Text Resources, RAT files, Destination Controls) that we would like to copy up to the "configuration" directory that is available on the Cloud ESA.  We have instructions on how to create a CLI connection with a tunnel to the Cloud ESA, but would like to have the ability to FTP or SCP also.

Is there documentation available to accomplish this?  

Thanks,

Doug

I was able to figure this out

I was able to figure this out on my own.  Posting for other that may need it.

First you have to setup a secure tunnel to the Cloud ESA system.  Support should be able to supply you the information.  You will need this to run any CLI-commands for your Cloud ESA.  You also need to have Putty installed on your PC.  Also, you need to have SCP enabled on your Cloud ESA (Open a TAC for this)

Then make the connection to the secured tunnel.  When connected, open a command line on your PC and do the following command:

pscp -P 2200 <file name> <username>@127.0.0.1:/configuration

This will upload the file to the /configuration directory on your appliance.

Hello Doug,

Hello Doug,

Thanks for providing that helpful information for anyone running into the same question. I must have missed this post in my email notifications, so I apologize if you were delayed in finding a resolution.

Here's some additional clarity on the steps :

1) Customer creates Public/Private SSH key pair (quick web search can provide you with instructions specific to your OS and SSH client)

2) Customer provides Public SSH key to Cisco TAC via support case

3) Cisco TAC imports Public SSH key 

4) Cisco TAC provides customer with additional steps to setup SSH client

5) Customer sets up SSH client per the provided steps

6) Customer connects via SSH

7) Customer uses the command provided earlier to manipulate files in the configuration directory on their CES appliances

(2200 can be changed to whichever port you're using to tunnel/forward the SSH traffic)

pscp -P 2200 <file name> <username>@127.0.0.1:/configuration

Thanks!
