Please help with question 'copy tftp flash'

Answered Question
Jul 16th, 2009

Hi, I am getting a time out when trying to copy tftp flash. If the remote tftp server requires authentication (I suspect that is the problem but I am not sure), is there any way to get authenticated first then do 'copy tftp flash' to avoid the error below? Please see ouput below showing that I have connectvity to tftp server just fine.

ciscoswitch#copy tftp flash

Address or name of remote host []? 10.1.1.1

Hi Marlon,

What is the permission on /tftpboot? I don't believe there is any option to specify tftp with authentication.

HTH,
