Storing and serving ProxySG upgrade images on a Director appliance



Starting, with SGME, Director includes an Apache server configured to listen on port 80. This server is intended for serving up Central Policy files to proxies.

However, it can also be used for storing and serving up ProxySG upgrade images in the event that the proxies do not have direct access to the Internet.



To store ProxySG images on Director, the images need to be downloaded to the "/var/www/html" directory on the Director appliance.

The following commands can be used to do so. The last CURL command downloads an SGOS release for a ProxySG 510. You may subtitute the URL and the filename after the "-O" option to suit your needs:

director > en
director # conf t
director (config) # shell
Releasing the configuration lock.
sh-2.05b# cd /var/www/html
sh-2.05b# curl -k -O sg510-6241.bcsi


Alternatively, if you already have the images downloaded to an internal FTP server, the following commands can be used to get the images onto the Director appliance:

sh-2.05b# ftp
Connected to (
Name ( admin
331 Password required for admin
230 Logged on
Remote system type is UNIX.
ftp> bin
200 Type set to I
ftp> get sg510-6241.bcsi


Once the file is downloaded, it will be available at the following URL:


At this point, you can use the above URL on your proxies for fetching the upgrade image.
