I'm trying to do an automated backup of the VPN3005 using scp.
First, I downloaded the source for openssh 3.6.1-p2 ( looks like openssh 3.4-x does not return the correct scp exit code) and compiled it.
Running the command 'scp -oProtocol=1 admin@<ip>:CONFIG /tmp/backup-files' mostly works - but for some odd reason the concentrator sometimes hangs up on me - even when the scp transfer succeeded. Thus, I get a non-zero exit code and my cron-job complains :=(
I suspect that the ssh/scp server in the concentrator is buggy - is there any known workarounds ?
Is there a better way to backup the box - perhaps using the XML interface ?
Though there are a number of documented SSH vulnerabilities, none of them seem to be related to the problem you face. I guess a save followed by a reboot might be your best bet. If that does not work, it would be a good idea to consider the possibility that one of the SSH vulnerabilities is being exploited on your network. Please see bug CSCdz15393.
