Cerberus FTP Server

What is SCP?

Available in:

The Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) is a simple file transfer protocol that can send or retrieve a single file at a time, and is ideal for straightforward use cases such as securely copying files to a remote location, e.g. for a firmware update. An SCP file transfer begins by opening an SSH connection to the remote destination. Once connection is established, files are exchanged securely and the connection is pulled down and terminated upon transfer completion.

Ideal for Remote Updates and Installs

Executable via command line

Because of SCP’s limitations, folder/directory uploads and downloads via SCP must be done recursively, and the protocol does not natively support a GUI. If you want to provide a user interface and the ability for users to browse a folder, you’ll need to use an SFTP server instead.
