Error opening tftp:network-confg

Hey all-

I'm a Cisco instructor and many of the routers in my class give a:

%Error opening tftp:// (Timed out)

messsage every time the students boot up with no config file. Sometimes "network-confg" is "cisconet-cfg".

As soon as the students create a config file it stops happening on reboot, but they write-erase and boot frequently during class and it's a real problem. I've tried "no service config" but that doesn't seem to help. And CTRL-SHIFT-6-x doesn't interrupt it; they just have to sit there for several minutes until it times out.

Any ideas how to shut this behavior off permanently?

Dave has posted exactly this same question in the LAN Switching and Routing forum where I have posted a response. I suggest that any further discussion be consolidated in that forum.

Yup. Sorry; I posted it here then realized that the LAN forum was the better place for it.
