Hi kumar, Don't you have the serial connection? If you have then you can backup the IOS through Serial Interface. Thanks, Goutam

Generally you can load an IOS via the console port; don't know whether the converse is supported.

Hi Joseph, You are right. But according the post - he wants to take a backup of the running IOS. I am not confident that it can be done by the XMODEM - receive file process. Some one can post any idea? Thanks, Goutam.
