I have a 1711 running IOS 12.2(7)XR3. It provides the connection and firewall from our private net to the Internet. It is working fine.
I am learning how to back up the config file, I am using ftp: destination. I always get this type of error:
Error writing ftp://someIPAddress/someFileName (Timed out)
Apr 10 17:57:58.114 PDST: FTP: connect failed -- Connection timed out; remote host not responding
I have tried numerous FTP servers and FTP Server implementations, both inside the private network and out in the internet.
My preferred FTP service is a Microsoft one on the local private subnet (FTP is part of Microsoft IIS package). With this FTP service, it appears that the FTP username must be e.g. mydomain.dom\myname. I have tried using the ip ftp username to set that name, as well as including name and password right in the FTP URL. Always I just get "Connection timed out; remote host not responding". Does ftp to a microsoft FTP service work?
I can ping the FTP server no problem.
