I connect my PC to the switch 3560 through the console port, how can I save the startup-config file onto my PC? Is there some specific command? Thanks a lot!
Using console port, I guess you are using Hyper Terminal then there are 2 different ways to copy the contents of Startup-Config.
Issue command Show Startup-config
then select the config lines and paste into a text editor and save as text file or wordpad.
the second option is select from the Hyper Terminal Menu Transfer --> Capture Text
then specify a filename and path where you want to save this and click Start
Then Issue Show startup-config
then again transfer --> capture text --> stop
you will find the output of show startup-config is saved into the file you specified.
I think there is a 3rd way which is by using xmodem receive file option.
The best option will always be to use a tftp server running on your pc via the LAN connection.
U need to have tftp server on the pc,and it should have IP connectivity with the switch.
if u have this things then login in to the switch and enter the below commands.
switch#copy startup-config tftp
