By download a configuration file for the 3560, I understand: how to save the running-config of the 3560.



The fastest, is to download TFTP32 on your computer.

This will act as a TFTP server.


Then from the CLI of the 3560 type the following:

copy running-config tftp, follow the instructions and then the config file will be stored in the TFTP32 path specified in the program.

OK, here comes my ignorant response. Where do I get TFTP32 and how do I get to the CLI of the 3560? Thanks for your help.

Serial connection implies that you have physical access. With a telnet you just need to know the ip address and login credentials.

OK, I went through telnet got the file and it was saved on my desktop. What was the TFTP for? Did it use the TFTP without me knowing it? It asked the address where I wanted the destination file to go, so I plugged in the IP address and it was there on my desktop.

TFTPD is a program that turns your pc in a tftp server.


The command copy running-config tftp instructs the switch to send to a tftp server the file, over the TFTP protocol.


Your issue should then now be resolved.

Makes sense. Thanks for all your help in such a timely fashion. Now I don't have to worry if my 3560's go down hard. Hopefully, these config's will help me get back up and running quicker.
