Does LMS 3.2 still use need rcp enabled on our devices?

LMS 3.2 running on Unix in a master-slave configuration.

Our security team is asking us why we need rcp (port 514) enabled on our routers.

It's becuase of the following standard commands;

ip rcmd rcp-enable
ip rcmd remote-host cwuser <ip address of LMS> cwuser enable

I believe these commands helped with the archiving of the device configurations? I know it's been a standard command of ours for years, but am not sure if it is still needed?

Any information you can provide would help.

Thanks,

RCP is optional.  If you would rather use TFTP, SSH, SCP, etc. you can disable RCP.  By default, LMS/RME will use TFTP, TELNET, and SSH for config archive.

Perfect...I'll remove it from some of our device configs and run some tests to be sure.

As always, thanks a lot!
