Scp from remote host to local directory


#1

Hey guys,
I’m just getting started with CMK and im wondering if its possible (utilising existing plugins) to execute an SCP command to fetch a plain text file from a remote host that isnt running an agent. Specifically i want to load a config file (plain text) of a firewall and store it locally. Can you help me?

cheers

It sounds that the contents of the config file is not used to provide values necessary for a plugin call. Thus I’d use something like a cron job to get the file.
