I would like to upload the configuration file from my pc to my router using the 857W console port and a suitable terminal emulation program that supports XModem (or similar).
1. Does my router support XModem and can it be used for uploading / downloading config files? Other postings suggest XModem can only be used for upgrading IOS.
2. What terminal emulation program would you suggest for running on Windows Vista?
I don't want to use TFTP as it doesn't seem to have much security and it seems a more complex option. What could be simpler or more secure than uploading a config file from a PC connected to the console port?
