I typed the command you have sent to me but I get the same error message.When I type 'dir'

at the prompt I see two files the first is the 'image.bin' and the second one is the 'downgrade.cfg'. So I want to save the image.bin to the tftp server with copy flash tftp command, but I get an error message which I desribed in my last message.

Oh, my bad. It is PIX 515 . You can not copy running image to a tftp. But you can copy the config file

butI think it must be possible to save the current image binary , we save it on a 515E with pix version 6.3 without problems
