Providing a Username and Password in One Line When Copying a FTP File to a Cisco ASA Firewall

| Comments

To copy a file from an FTP server to the flash of a ASA you could do the following:

copy ftp flash

Which will then prompt you for all the details (username/password/location/file). But there is a better way which will allow you to put all of that information on one line.

To indicate all of the details on one line you can do:

copy ftp://ftpuser:Passw0rD@ flash

This indicates the username is ftpuser, with the password of Passw0rD with the location of the ftp server at with the filename asa825-41-k8.bin.
