StageNow Staging Solution
Resolution / Answer
The StageNow tool's built-in staging server is an FTP server to which devices download the staging content of the Deployment section, files selected for download from the remote server, and RD staging files.
Also note that the staging (FTP) server runs only when the tool is running, and stops when the application closes. Therefore, the tool must be running when staging the device with profiles as described above.
StageNow staging solution uses FTP in passive mode. So, for setting up firewall, make sure FTP is not blocked and ports associated to it:
21 - control connection
1024 - 65535 - data connections
