VRF support for file transfer client connections

The vRouter uses FTP that contains several commands. If the network configuration supports VRF, the syntax for each command includes optional VRF parameters. The optional VRF parameters specify the non-default VRF that is used when running the command.

FTPs used in commands that support non-default VRFs must access servers on non-default VRFs. Therefore, commands that support non-default VRF also must also be aware of the VRF parameter that is used in the configuration.

For example, a customer may have vRouter images stored on a server in the non-default VRF; so, the add system image command must be able to download from that server. The add system image command sytax consists of the routing instance parameter that specifies the non-default VRF that is used. The command follows:

vyatta@R1# add system image { iso-filename | [routing-instance <ri-name>] iso-URL [ username username password password ] }
An example of a routing instance follows:
vyatta@R1# add system image routing-instance red http://1.2.3.4/images/vrouter.iso
