Nexus 7004 - copy from HTTPS source

Is there a way to copy a file or text from an HTTPS source? When I do "copy ?", I only see http, not https... Is there a feature that needs to be enabled? Thanks.

copy a file or text from an HTTPS source  - BB  - you can copy from https source, as long as path is correct


what are you trying to achieve here? can you post- show version.


i do see https on nexus os here.

Re: Nexus 7004 - copy from HTTPS source

Hi Balaji, here is my show ver output. I have also opened up a ticket and they told me that it is not supported... What version are you running on? Is it also the 7004 platform? I am wondering if it is platform relevant. Thanks.
