I am analysing IP traffic between a Network Management System (=> Spectrum) and a Cisco 1240 Access Point, which has IOS version 12.4. Where the focus currently is at restoring a running-config from the NMS to the Cisco device.
I issued commands like
copy ftp://192.168.1.1/config.txt running-config
copy tftp://192.168.1.1/config.txt running-config
both in Telnet and SSH on the Cisco device.
While using a packet sniffer like Wireshark, I noticed the config file has been sent more than 1 time (of which the config data can be seen in the packets). To be exactly;
For tftp - 2 times
For ftp - 4 times
Does anyone have any idea why the file has been sent multiple times?
The 'problem' also occurs while copying from ftp / tftp to a file on flash.
Thanks in advance!
