Re: Disable Secure Mode - FOS 7.x

Did you ever find an answer for this? 


Once I updates to 7.2.1a I can no update no further with FTP.  I get the secure mode message about SCP must be used.  I have no SCP available at most customers.  I can't figure out how to disable secure mode or allow FTP.


Java GUI with 7.2.1a after login gives many java exceptions and fails to launch, so i need to update.

.......:admin> configure

Not all options will be available on an enabled switch.
To disable the switch, use the "switchDisable" command.
