Backup ASA-5510 from a server via TFTP

The question is:

How to backup Cisco ASA-5510 from a Linux server via TFTP?

I do know how to backup a switch or a router. Basically creating an access list such as:

access-list 55 remark PERMIT hosts requesting TFTP access

access-list 55 permit host

and allowing access to

tftp-server nvram:startup-config 55

all this inside the router or the switch.

From the Linux box just running a simple command such as:

tftp -c get startup-config newbackup.conf

where is the IP address of the switch and newbackup.conf is the name of the config file stored on the Linux machine.

So, how do I do that with an ASA box?

Thank you.

PS This is not a question how to backup ASA from inside it. It's pretty easy and there are millions of examples on the net.

Backup ASA-5510 from a server via TFTP

Hello Joro,

Have you tried it on the ASA? Are you seeing any error? Pls. provide details, syslogs, session log about what is breaking.

As far as the ASA is concerned you do not need any ACL for "TO" the box traffic. ACL applied to interfaces are for "THROUGH" the box traffic.
