SbcSftp

The SBC Core is enhanced with a new utility /opt/sonus/bin/SbcSftp with permissions -rwsr-xr-x, which allows the SBC user to securely transfer files to a remote server using the Linux shell. 

When executed, the program SbcSftp:

  • Creates the necessary Access Control List (ACL) to allow the sftp connection from the SBC linux shell to a remote server
  • Uploads/Downloads specified files to/from the remote server over a SFTP session, if the user has permissions to access the file

  • Deletes the ACL

The advantage of using SbcSftp over vanilla sftp is that SbcSftp automatically creates and deletes ACLs for accessing the remote server.

Message logs

The file /var/log/sftp.log contains messages about the following:

  • The success/failure of file transfers using SbcSftp, along with exit codes

    Note

    The exit codes are identical to the GNU Linux sftp utility - 0 for success, and 1 for failure.

  • The destination for successful uploads/downloads

Command Syntax

To use the SbcSftp program, execute the following command:

% /opt/sonus/bin/SbcSftp <remote_IP> <remote_port> <username> [upload | download] <local_SBC_path> <remote_server_path>

Tip

Enclose wildcard expressions in file paths within double quotes (""). For example:

  • <"local_SBC_path">
  • <"remote_server_path">

Caution

Do not configure ACLs to the same remote IP and port using both SBC CLI and the SbcSftp command; otherwise it causes the SbcSftp command to fail.

Command Example

Note

To execute the commands mentioned below, you must log on to the SBC as linuxadmin.

Upload

To upload the file /var/log/sonus/sbx/evlog/1000004.ACT from the local SBC to the /tmp/ directory of the remote server 10.10.10.10 (using TCP port 22):

% /opt/sonus/bin/SbcSftp 10.10.10.10 22 user upload /var/log/sonus/sbx/evlog/1000004.ACT /tmp/

Download

To download the file /home/linuxadmin/script.cli from the remote server 10.10.10.10 to the /tmp/ directory of the local SBC (using TCP port 22):

% /opt/sonus/bin/SbcSftp 10.10.10.10 22 user download /tmp/ /home/linuxadmin/script.cli
