copy disk0:s72033-entservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXE2.bin tftp

That should do it but it does sound like this is what you have tried.

Where are you tftp'ing to and what type of tftp server is it.

Hi john,

thanx for your reply. Actually the error is, when i try with copy disk0:IOSname tftp: it is copying the file upto 33553920bytes after that it is showing the error

"%Error writing tftp://172.19.X.X/IOSname.bin ....."

I checked the space availability and tftp settings. but nothing helped me.
