About the File Servers Page

To access this page, select the Administration tab and click File Servers in the left-nav bar.

The File Servers page lists the file servers that the proNX Optical Director is configured to use. The proNX Optical Director uses file servers for device software upgrades and device backup and restore operations.

Each file server entry is associated with a single protocol (FTP or SFTP). If you want the file server that you are configuring to be used for both FTP and SFTP access, then create two file server entries, one for each protocol.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following actions on this page:

  • View the list of file servers that the proNX Optical Director can currently use.
  • Specify a new file server for the proNX Optical Director to use.
  • Edit the information for an existing file server.
  • Remove an existing file server from the list of servers that the proNX Optical Director can use.
