    Specifying Filenames and URLs

    In some CLI commands and configuration statements—including file copy, file, archive, load, and save—you can include a filename.

    You can specify a filename or URL in one of the following ways:

    • filename—File in the user’s current directory on the local system. You can use wildcards to specify multiple source files or a single destination file. Wildcards are not supported in 7.0.0 Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or FTP.

      Note: Wildcards are supported only by the file compare, file copy, file delete, file list, file rename, file show, and save commands. When you issue the file show command with a wildcard, it must resolve to one filename.

    • path/filename—File on the local system.
    • File URL—File URL of local files.
    • usb:filename—Files on a dynamically mounted USB port.

      Note: This format supports only a single partition on a USB storage device. If the system device of the USB storage device contains more than one partition, the SRC software sorts the partitions according to file system type and uses the first partition.

    • ftp://hostname/path/filename—File on an FTP server. You can also specify hostname as username@hostname or username:password@hostname.

      For example:

      user@host> file copy ftp://username@ftp.hostname.net//filename
      file copy ftp.hostname.net: Not logged in.
