Transfer files using the Take Control viewer

Upload and download files to the remote device using a file transfer protocol. The FTP capability enables you to send files or upload log reports from the remote device. There is no imposed restriction to the type or size of the files or folders.

  1. In SolarWinds N-central, click ViewsAll Devices.
  2. Click the link for the device.
  3. Click Remote Control in the upper-right corner and select Take Control.
  4. Click the File Transfer tab.
  5. Select an item from the Local File List or the Remote File List and drag it to the target destination.

Transfers are registered on the session report and in the Chat window.

The File Transfer Queue shows the list of transfers and their progress. You can change the priority of each file transfer by changing a file’s position in the file transfer queue.

You can also pause and cancel each transfer and rename and delete files using the pencil and trash can icons.
