2) Open the command line and enter the following commands:
    • Uploading a configuration file via SCP:

      scp <name of the configuration file> <username>@<IP address of the LANCOM router>:config
    • Uploading a configuration file via PLINK:

      plink -ssh -batch <username>@<IP address of the LANCOM router> < <name of the configuration file>

1) Example using PSCP:
    • Uploading a configuration file via SCP, encrypted:
      pscp -scp <name of the configuration file> <username>@<IP address of the LANCOM router>:config

      Example: pscp -scp C:\Configs\config.lcf root@62.153.13.111:config

      Example: $ scp 001-config.lcf root@62.153.13.111:config

      After entering the above command you will be prompted to input a password as follows:
      root@62.153.13.111's password:


3. Example using PLINK:

      plink -ssh -batch <username>@<IP address of the LANCOM router> < <name of the configuration file>

      Example: plink -ssh -batch root@62.153.13.111 < config.lcf
