Globalscape, Cygwin, Open SSH and Titan are CISCO tested sftp server. Freeftpd is not recommend due to well know issues with the file size issues.

Cisco PCD can also be used for backup, its free and  supported.

 

You can try Freeftpd if its works without any issue use it or try something mentioned above .

We use Solarwind SFTP. It’s free and has worked well for us for many years.

Hi Balaji,

 

Thank you for the advise. I will try Freeftpd.

Hi Balaji,

 

I installed FreeFTPd and initiated a manual backup. It was 100% completed and the files are transfered into the server.

 

Is there any way to confirm that the backup stored on the other server was properly stored/transferred? Or just having it transferred to other server is enough?

If the backup processed showed successful , Backup files saved properly on  the folder.

Hi Nithin,

 

Cisco PCD, is it Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment?

Yes Prime Collaboration Deployment. But you need to manually move the backup files from PCD to another machine using winscp etc... we use this in some cases, but no very common.

Hi Roger,

 

I used to utilise Solarwinds SFTP. But since the last Solarwinds upbreak, we prefer not to use it anymore. Although it served us well and the issue only impacts Solarwinds NPM (if I remember it correctly).

This is correct. The defect that is well known does not AFAIK affect the SFTP server software.

Hi there

 

Back in days, Freeftpd had the 1GB file size restrictions. But was fixed. Now a days Cisco don't test and recommend any third-party SFTPs. It's up to you which one to use. 

 

PCD is the only SFTP Cisco internally tested.

SFTP Server Support

Use the information in the following table to determine which SFTP server solution to use in your system.

Table 7. SFTP Server InformationSFTP ServerInformation

SFTP Server on Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment

This server is the only SFTP server that is provided and tested by Cisco, and fully supported by Cisco TAC.

Version compatibility depends on your version of Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment. See the Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment Administration Guide before you upgrade its version (SFTP) or Unified Communications Manager to ensure that the versions are compatible.

SFTP Server from a Technology Partner

These servers are third party provided and third party tested. Version compatibility depends on the third party test. See the Technology Partner page if you upgrade their SFTP product and/or upgrade Unified Communications Manager for which versions are compatible:

https://marketplace.cisco.com

SFTP Server from another Third Party

These servers are third party provided and are not officially supported by Cisco TAC.

Version compatibility is on a best effort basis to establish compatible SFTP versions and Unified Communications Manager versions.

Note These products have not been tested by Cisco and we cannot guarantee functionality. Cisco TAC does not support these products. For a fully tested and supported SFTP solution, use Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment or a Technology Partner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope this Helps
