File transfer protocol supported by Cisco infrastructure

We are having issues uploading new endpoint firmware updates to TMS and firmware updates to our VCS-C and VCS-E.


Talking with our network team, FTP is not supported between the network segments I am traversing.  They can create some SFTP exceptions, but will the Cisco devices support SFTP?


Thanks for your help.

You'll find that a lot of the devices support SCP rather than SFTP.

You can also use HTTP ot HTTPS to upload the firmware files in to TMS, and to the Infrastrucuture components.

If you use TMS to deploy the software to the endpoints, the endpoints download it via HTTP(s) from your TMS server.

Note: with the more recent versions of TMS you can no longer upgrade VCSes using TMS and they must be done via the browser interface.
