#1 set your SSH password or use the supplied random value
#2 Install and use the SCP (Secure Copy Protocol) on your computer and connect using the same username and password as SSH access.

Never used winscp before, what would the user name be? only have password on Raise3D, what would the port number be?

Thanks for the quick reply!

root

The IP address is the same you see when connecting. SCP is a standard port protocol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_copy
"SCP runs over TCP port 22 by default."

Here, this has screen captures viewtopic.php?f=2&t=354&p=6665#p6665

Again, what has changed is that from that screen, in the past, it would have been root and blank password.
Now, added security is standard, so the printer has a random password generated by default, but can be seen under the security settings or you the user can specify your own custom password.

The same password is used for BOTH SSH and SCP because they are related.
"The SCP is a network protocol, based on the BSD RCP protocol,[3] which supports file transfers between hosts on a network. SCP uses Secure Shell (SSH) for data transfer and uses the same mechanisms for authentication, thereby ensuring the authenticity and confidentiality of the data in transit. "

I've not peered too extensively under the "Front Panel" hood, except to notice that it runs Linux and I can ssh into it.
A quick poke at the OS reveals:

Code: Select all

root@imx6qdlsolo:~# uname -a
Linux imx6qdlsolo 3.10.53 #72 SMP PREEMPT Sun Sep 6 16:25:47 CST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux
root@imx6qdlsolo:~# cat /etc/issue
Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.7 \n \l

root@imx6qdlsolo:~#


So there's probably a version of rsync you could install on there and back things up that way too.
