Hi there, just purchased some cisco kit - 2 x Cisco 2501 Ethernet Dual Serial Router 16mb Flash / 16mb Dram / IP Plus 12.3 IOS. I've been working through configuring the ports, serial link and passwords etc... On some occassions when running a show running-config i see some memory errors... see below...
Current configuration : 731 bytes

From what i can see the router is running out of memory and i'm not sure why? heres my 'show version' output.. It seems i have 32K on NVRAM, is this normal? if anyone could shed any light on this that would be great. Thanks! Garry
