What terminal emulation software are you using? If you are using CRT or SecureCRT from Van Dyke, you can log the session. If you are using HyperTerminal, you can capture the text under "Transfer". If you are using command prompt, you have to change the buffer to a very large number and cut and paste it.

Hello Sivaprakasam,

whatever telnet client you are using there are logging options

you need to enable log to a file

then you do sh tech-support

then you stop logging and you have the sh tech in a text file on your PC

for example for putty is

change settings -- logging

select printable output only

on the file name box choice the filename you want to give to the file

with securecrt

file ->log session open a file dialog box where you can choice name and dir

Hope to help

Or you can use the following if you are using command prompt:

telnet -f abc.txt

To use tftp, there is a need of workstation in the remote location. Is there any other way,where i can do the file tranfer without going for a workstation in the remote location LAN.

Thank you,

You can redirect the output of the "show tech" file via TFTP. I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for.

show tech | redirect tftp://

Change the to the TFTP server IP address, and change the test to what you would like to name the file.
