|Issue||KB-1698 How can files be 'downloaded' from the Aveksa FTP over SSL server from SuSE ACM 6.8.1 appliance|
I'm not able to find the lftp command on 6.8.1 Appliance with SuSE OS installed. This command is specifically mentioned in KB-1638 Aveksa FTP over SSL, How can files be 'downloaded' from the Aveksa FTP over SSL server on a SuSE system?
Accessing RSA IAM (Aveksa ACM) files on the Aveksa FTP over SSL server from appliances with IAM/ACM V6.8.1 and the SuSE Operating System installed
An alternative to using lftp directly is to make use of the Linux 'curl' command. Note that when using download option for lftp with curl, it is necessary to know
curl --<protocol> --<connection type> -u <username> -<O, l - download option> <fully qualified FTP URL>
How to find out specific filenames in a known directory:
To determine the filenames of the files located on in a specific directory on the Aveksa ftp Server, connect toftp.aveksa.com from the SuSE Linux command line
How to download a specific file once it's name is known:
$ curl --ftp-ssl --insecure -u 'myftp' -O ftp://ftp.aveksa.local/ACM/V6.8.1/HotFixes/Aveksa_6.8.1_HF01.tar.gz
How to download all of the files in a known directory location:
#1) $ curl --ftp-ssl --insecure -u 'myftp' -l ftp://ftp.aveksa.com/ACM/V6.8.1/product_documentation > need_files.txt
Is sftp available on an Aveksa/RSA appliance?
Note that the SFTP application package is provided with both RedHat and SuSE Operating Systems. No curl command is needed when using SFTP. however, most customer ftp accounts are setup to access the Aveksa FTP over SSL server, not the SFTP server. If there are any question about which server the account is setup on, please contact Aveksa Technical Support.
Additional information regarding directory naming conventions on Aveksa FTP server.
The directory/file locations for Aveksa products are fairly consistent. Each main release or version has it's own directory. For example, amongst the versions found under the ACM root directory are:
Under each of these versions, the following directories can typically be found. The HotFixes directory will not exist for any release until the initial HF01 files are created.

In the examples shown below, the username is assumed to be 'myftp'. Also, in these examples, the user is prompted to enter the appropriate password, it is not entered at the command line. Customers will need to know their Aveksa FTP over SSL account credentials. Most customer accounts are setup to use FTP overSSL by default. If you have any questions about your account setup, please do not hesitate to contact RSA/Aveksa Technical Support.
