How big can be a conf file saved in router ....

As i know the conf is in NVRAM. The test give the screen output from

sh ver

Cisco 1812 (MPC8500) processor (revision 0x300) with 118784K/12288K bytes of mem



10 FastEthernet interfaces

1 ISDN Basic Rate interface

31360K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)

Configuration register is 0x2102

As i know from this info there is no way to view size of nvram.....

What is the trick?

In the enable mode, u can try this command

Router#dir nvram:

Directory of nvram:/

26 -rw- 4661 startup-config

27 ---- 24 private-config

32762 bytes total (28027 bytes free)

the nvram volume is 32762 bytes in the device.

I know that...but in the question there is no option to connect to any router You just get the picture output from sh ver command

check the show version output for something like "bytes of non-volatile configuration memory".

there is no any record about that see the output at the begining of the post

The show version command should give you the details, but as per your screen dump, doesn't show details. Will check tomorrow.

The 1812 comes with Security Device Manager (SDM). There is no nvram. The configuration files are kept in the flash. It looks like you have the default 32MB of flash.

So the answer should be the free part of flash
