Configupload ftp ports

Hello!

Because of different changes happening, it is now required to backup config files into a different ftp server, thing is, it's on port 5000.

Now, when I try to backup the files, switch wont accept xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5000 or xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 5000

I know it's kinda stupid but thats the requirement set, can't change the ftp port and has to be done that way for the moment

Any ideas?

thnx in advance

Re: Configupload ftp ports

Hello Roberto,

I have not seen an official option to change the FTP port. You have the option to use secureCopy "scp" to upload your config in a secure way.

Re: Configupload ftp ports

Thnx for the replies, however i think you guys missed the part where I mentioned ftp was the only option.

I know the alternatives, and it's actually gonna chance to probably scp, but for now there is no other choice.

Just trying to find work arounds, thnx tho

Re: Configupload ftp ports

roberto,

please help me to understand your issue:

you open the Thread as

Configupload ftp ports

and post

...it is now required to backup config files into a different ftp server, thing is, it's on port 5000.

...Now, when I try to backup the files, switch wont accept....

FTP Port ( as default 21 ) or another port will not be collect in the i.e. "backupfilename.txt"

My opinion, - I've never test this before-,

your have to add / create with ipfilter a new policy - rule.
