How can I use a USB memory stick to copy from and to the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW)?
You can use a USB memory stick to copy files from and to the firewall engine.
Important Only USB sticks formatted as FAT or EXT file systems can be used.
To access the USB memory stick:
[ 107.360078] usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
[ 107.596557] scsi0 : usb-storage 1-2:1.0
[ 108.640799] scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access Innostor Innostor 1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
[ 108.748986] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 16195584 512-byte logical blocks: (8.29 GB/7.72 GiB)
[ 108.840736] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
[ 108.898180] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 109.123743] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 109.268904] sda/sda1:
[ 109.295384] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 109.368435] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI removable disk
Note The device name is listed on the third to last line. Here it is sda/sda1. It could also be sda, sdb, etc…
mkdir -p /data/usb_mount_point
mount /dev/sda1 /data/usb_mount_point
Note Use the device name you obtained in step 1. In this example it was sda/sda1, so the secondary devfs device name is /dev/sda1. The primary device name can also be used. In this example it would be /dev/scsi/host#/bus0/target2/lun0/part1 (where host# is the host folder with the highest number).
Note When using the above command, the mount program tries to find out the file system on the mounted device automatically. This should work but if needed, the file system can also be specified with the -t <filesystem type> parameter. For example, with a FAT formatted USB stick, insert -t vfat before the device name.
