Configure AFU to SCP client parameters

You can automatically upload recordings to an SCP (secure copy) client when you select SCP as the AFU protocol transfer type using the Admin panel.

The following table describes the parameters to configure AFU to an SCP client.

SCP Automatic Upload Configuration Parameters

Name Description
Server address The IP address (or fully qualified domain name) of the destination server.
Server port The SCP port used by the target server. Standard port is 22.
Login Username for the SCP server.
Password Password for the SCP user.


Configure AFU upload to an SCP client using the Admin panel

  1. From the Automatic File Upload configuration page, select SCP Client as the protocol transfer type.

  1. Specify the target Server address. If your system is configured with DHCP or has a valid DNS configuration (see Configure DHCP), you can use the server’s fully qualified domain name instead of the IP address.
  2. Specify the Server Port used for the destination SCP server. The standard port is 22.
  3. Enter the SCP account username in the Login field.
  4. Enter the SCP account password in the Password field; the characters are masked with dots. (Alternatively you can choose to use a private key instead of a password for authentication.)
  5. For secure copy you can upload an SSH identity for your Pearl-2. This key must be trusted by the destination server. Details for generating the key and setting up this trust are beyond the scope of this document.

  1. (Optional) Set up SSH identity for SCP and SFTP clients. If no identity is uploaded, or to upload a new identity (overwrites the old identity):

    1. Click Choose File and navigate to select the private key file from your hard drive, then click Open.
    2. Click Upload to upload the file.
    3. The system accepts RSA keys for SSH-1; DSA, ECDSA, EC25519 and RSA for SSH-2. Keys must be in OpenSSH format.

    4. (Optional) Use the Test your key field to test your uploaded key against the secure server.
