Additional notes
  • If an error is to occur, it will list it in message bar in Download Progress Window. Often the CLI credentials are not correct, or the scripting method set discussed in Step 6 is not set correctly.
  • The Netsight appliance has a built in SCP server. The Windows Server implementation does not. One would have to include an external app or IP under File Transfer settings in windows to address SCP externally.
