Hello Sirajul,

to be able to use TFTP you need a LAN connection between your laptop and the C6509.


let's suppose you have on C6509:


int vlan 1

ip address 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0

no shut


a 48 ports FE/GE linecard


int fas3/1

switchport

switchport mode access

swithport access vlan 1


you connect with a straight RJ-45 UTP cable to the LAN NIC of laptop


you give to the laptop an ip address in subnet 10.0.0.0/24 for example

10.0.0.253 255.255.255.0


you then need a TFTP server software on the PC and to execute it


from the console you can give


copy tftp flash (*)


(*) you can use dir /all to find the names of the filesystems in your C6500.

the actual name can be slot0: for example




then you are asked for

ip address

filename


give the pc ip address, the filename as it is on the PC hard disk


Hope to help

Giuseppe

In catos its pretty much the same. Depend s on what media you have in your 6509.
