Adding Remote Files

This tutorial covers the following topics:

  • Creating a new profile
  • Defining a remote host by using either password- or key authentication
  • Adding new sources (log files) from the remote host to the profile

Note: In order to use SSH key authentication, you will need a combination of private and public keys along with a keyphrase. Public key should be uploaded and stored on the remote host.

Step 6: Provide user authentication details: username and password for password authentication or username, private key and keyphrase in case of SSH key based authentication.

Step 7: Click the [OK] button to add host definition.

Step 8: Click newly added host and browse its file system to find desired log files.
