A password must contain any three of upper-case letters, lower-case letters, digits, and characters.
For local users who use FTP, run the ftp-directory command to configure the FTP path to save received files.
b. Log in to the device using the FTP command and run the get command to download files to the PC or run the put command to upload files to the device.
On the PC with the Windows system, choose Start > Run, enter cmd, and click OK.

Format of USG6000 profiles
Profiles are text files. Profiles are saved in the command format. Only non-default parameters are saved (for default values of configuration parameters, see the corresponding chapters). Commands are organized based on the command view. Commands in the same command view form a section. Sections are separated by empty lines or comment lines (started with "#"). The number of empty lines or comment lines is not fixed. The sequence of sections is as follows: global configuration, physical port configuration, logical interface configuration, and routing protocol configuration.

Operations on profiles of the USG6000
