copy active devices config thru TFTP from a remote PC


pc----6500lanA--sdh ring 1.....6500lanG

6500lanJ----sdh ring 2---6500lanZ

- lanA 192.168.1.x on vrf

- lanZ 10.10.10.x not on vrf

- there are core switches on each of the major locations of th sdh rings


- we can ping/telnet from the pc to the 6500lanZ loopback (normal ping)

- we cannot ping the pc from the 6500lanZ (normal ping)

- we can ping the pc from the 6500lanZ (vrf ping). ex. ping vrf vrfname 192.168.1.x

- invoking copy run tftp: and just putting the ip of the pc will result in a timeout because the 6500 cant reach the pc


- how copy run tftp will work in this case (if ping vrf is working, then there must be something to make tftp as well)

Try the "ip tftp source-interface" global configuration command and set the loopback interface as source.
