Generic File Transfer Service
Transfer a one or multiple files to/from the eNMS server to the device using either SFTP or SCP.
This service supports variable substitution in the source and destination file input fields, as well as the credentials fields, of its configuration form.
Configuration parameters for creating this service instance:
Direction: Get or Put the file from/to the target device's filesystem.
Protocol: Use SCP or SFTP to perform the transfer.
Source file: For Get, source file is the path-plus-filename on the device to retrieve to the eNMS server. For Put, source file is the path-plus-filename on the eNMS server to send to the device.
Destination file: For Get, destination file is the path-plus-filename on the eNMS server to store the file to. For Put, destination file is the path-plus-filename on the device to store the file to.
Missing Host Key Policy: If checked, auto-add the host key policy on the ssh connection.
Load Known Host Keys: If checked, load host keys on the eNMS server before attempting the connection.
Source file includes glob pattern (Put Direction only): Flag indicates that for Put Direction transfers only, the above Source file field contains a Glob pattern match for selecting multiple files for transport. When Globbing is used, the Destination file directory should only contain a destination directory, because the source file names will be re-used at the destination.
Max Transfer Size: This is that maximum packet size that will be used during transfer. This may adversely impact transfer times.
Window Size: This is the requested window size during transfer. This may adversely impact transfer times.
Timeout: How long to wait for the connection to be established.
