System backup via SmartConsole

Jump to solution

Hi,

In SmartConsole, right-clicking a firewall object > Actions > System backup. 

Does that support backup to a Windows machine running openssh server?

You don't need to specify a path, the backup file will be uploaded directly into home directory of your scp user account. This needs to be configured within your OpenSSH server configuration. Just in case you want to specify a specific path within the home directory of your scp user, you would simply use slahes to point it to the right direction.

Thanks Danny. The problem is path for Windows machine I think. If it's under forexample C:\openssh\backup

you would type /C:/openssh/backup/ but I don't think that it accepts the colon(:) sign. Am I right?

Just assuming that since if I would have tried that through Gaia web

SmartConsole requires some input in path field:

It works with /./ which will store it under C:\ or if you want it under C:\openssh\SystemBackup forexample then you would just write /openssh/SystemBackup/ in path. Thanks Danny!
