HI Vinu,

Its nice to See HCL Comnet Emp.. in NetPro.

What do you mean by Working Router's IOS ? for Study Purpose

---If my Understanding is not wrong, using the Production Router for Study purpose, if means you can use but see to that do not write any Configuration.

You can download TFTP Software from "SolarWinds" is a Free TFTP Software availaible.

Pls Rate if HELPS

Best Regards,

Perhaps I do not fully understand your queestion. If so please clarify. Cisco does not have any special license for free software for study purposes.

If you are looking for free TFTP software I have used with good success the 3CDaemon software which is available from this link:

I have also heard very good things about the tftpd32 software which is available from this link:

You can check out for 3Com TFTP services from the net and make use of the same..

What kinda study ur gonna do with the IOS ? are you gonna load this up on another box and try doing R&D then make sure that both are same model routers and have same DRAM/FLASH to work with the IOS..
