What is a requirement to use the Secure Copy Protocol feature?
- The Telnet protocol has to be configured on the SCP server side.
- A transfer can only originate from SCP clients that are routers.
- At least one user with privilege level 1 has to be configured for local authentication.
- A command must be issued to enable the SCP server side functionality.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The Secure Copy Protocol feature relies on SSH and requires that AAA authentication and authorization be configured so that the router can determine whether the user has the correct privilege level. For local authentication, at least one user with privilege level 15 has to be configured. Transfers can originate from any SCP client whether that client is another router, switch, or workstation. The ip scp server enable command has to be issued to enable the SCP server side functionality.
