Catalyst 4500, scp, rcp

Does anybody know is it possible to set up a remote access to the Catalyst 4500 series switch thru the rcp or scp protocol? I want to start commands on the remote unix server. Like unix# scp -i identity -B acl.file user@catalyst:system:running-config or unix# rcp acl.file user@catalyst:system:running-config, where acl.file is the file with access-list. It's important to start commands on the remote server, not on the switch. Thanks for any advice.

Re: Catalyst 4500, scp, rcp

Hello,

I just tried this on a Cat 4500 using tftp, and successfully changed its hostname, and added a new ACL.

The same should be true for rcp and scp.

Just remember to put "end" as the last line of the file, otherwise you will get a %PARSER-4-BADCFG: Unexpected end of configuration file message (but it still works).

This was tried on Version 12.2(25)EWA4.

Hope this helped,

Michael.

Re: Catalyst 4500, scp, rcp

Thank you very much for your answer. I have found the Cat 4506 for experiments. And SCP works! It's possible to change switch config running commands on the remote host using SCP.Today i will check rcp. I think it works also.

What about "end" in the config - yes, this line is required.
