The results will be available for download via any SCP on Linux or with Putty SCP (PSCP.exe) or any other SCP program in windows that does not use the same protocols as WinSCP.

You download the results by copying the commands and substituting for <user>@<appliance> in the commands with the username and the Host of the SSL Visibility appliance, for example:

Using Linux or Cygwin, change:

scp <user>@<appliance>:ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T164839.tgz ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T164839.tgz
to something like this:

scp [email protected]:ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T164839.tgz ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T164839.tgz

Similarly, for windows environments using Putty SCP(PSCP.EXE):

pscp.exe -scp <user>@<appliance>:ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T182253.tgz ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T182253.tgz
pscp.exe -
scp [email protected]:ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T182253.tgz ssl_session_log-2915450072-20170317T182253.tgz
