SCP is a secure alternative to FTP for event.txt, device configuration, and firmware update. It is strongly recommended that you use SCP and disable FTP on your APC NMC-based devices.
SCP is supported in EcoStruxure IT Gateway 1.9.0 and newer.
The FTP or SCP credentials on the device must match the device transfer settings on the Gateway Settings > Device credentials page.
Otherwise, refer to your device's documentation for instructions on how to set FTP or SCP credentials.
IMPORTANT: After you update the device configuration settings in the Gateway, you must rediscover the devices that you modified to use SCP credentials.
For instructions, see Configure Gateway device file transfer settings
