Upgrading firmware over SCP

Does anyone have a preferred program/method they like to use to upgrade FOS via SCP rather than FTP?

We have some secure accounts that block FTP access to the switch so SCP is a must.

You may need to use firmwaredownload -s command.

The -s option does not change the download method.  -s only changes whether you do one CP at a time or both CPs during firmwaredownload.

Re: Upgrading firmware over SCP

What I'm saying is, does anyone have a preferred SCP server that they use for Secure Firmwaredownload?

When you use the -p option, it does not change the fact that you are using an FTP server that communicates on Port 21.  I need something that communicates on Port 22.  The secure accounts block access to port 21 thus no FTP server will work.
