You can use the Remote Manager File Management tool to interact with your device’s file system and list, upload, download, or remove files. Follow these steps to use the File Management tool:

  1. Log in to your Remote Manager account (

  2. Select Devices on the left bar.

  3. Click the Device ID link of your device in the table. The device page loads.

  4. Select the Files option.

See Remote ConnectCore demo for an example using Remote Manager APIs.

For extended Remote Manager usage and reference information, see the Digi Remote Manager User Guide.

By default, the tool loads three items that are virtual directories mapping real paths of your device:

  • home maps the contents of /home/root

  • tmp maps the contents of /tmp

  • update maps the contents of /mnt/update

You can navigate through the file system and use the upper button bar to upload, download, or remove a file; refresh the view; and go back, forward, home, or to a specific location.

The accessible directories through Remote Manager can be configured in the /etc/cc.conf file using the virtual-dirs setting.

# Virtual Directories: Determines the file system sandbox root directories to
# use for the file system service. This setting has effect only if the
#'enable_file_system' setting is set to 'true'.
    vdir {
        name = "home"
        path = "/home/root"

    vdir {
        name = "tmp"
        path = "/tmp"

    vdir {
        name = "update"
        path = "/mnt/update"
