FMC 4500 Backup to SCP Server

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2019-11-18
I am trying to backup my FMC4500 to my SCP Server. I am running Windows 10 with SolarWinds SCP Server.

1. I have any/any on windows firewall
2. I can successfully SCP configs and backups from other devices (ASA's and Switches) to my SCP Server
3. I am trying to setup Remote Storage Device under System Configration. It will NOT successfully test.
4. I have tried running the backup and copying file remotely to SCP Server. The backup with run successfully, but the SCP copy will fail.
5. See my screen shot.ScreenShot1Screenshot2

SSHFS is based upon SFTP.   Can you access the service using SFTP.
I abandoned the remote file storage idea. I instead chose to copy the backup after its completed to an SCP Server. That worked!
