PIX Image

I copied all my firewall configurations to a tftp server. Now I was thinking that it would be a good idea to copy

the PIX image but I cannot seem to get it to work. I was able to copy

the IOS for my routers without a problem. I found a Cisco article at

the following link that explains how to copy the PIX image to a TFTP

server but it is not working for me:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a008072142a.shtml#write

In the article it states:

Issue the copy flash tftp command in order to copy the PIX image from

Flash to the TFTP server:

pix#copy flash tftp

Address or name of remote host []? 10.0.0.1

Source filename []? pix512.bin

Destination filename [pix512.bin]?

Accessing tftp://10.66.64.10/backup_cfg_for_pix...

!!!!

1030 bytes copied in 9.612 secs (107 bytes/sec)

pix#

When I do copy flash tftp all I get is this:

pix# copy flash tftp

Usage: copy capture:<capture-name> tftp://<location>/<pathname>

[pcap]

copy http[s]://[<user>:<password>@]<location>[:<port>]/

<pathname>

flash[:[image | pdm]]

copy tftp[:[[//location][/pathname]]] flash[:[image | pdm]]

None of these commands are what I want (I think).

I am on PIX 515 6.3.3

The TFTP-Server line is entered and it works for copying PIX configs.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: PIX Image

That's right you cannot copy the PIXOS image on the TFTP Server, but you can download it from Cisco.

Re: PIX Image

Never mind. I guess it can't be done. I found this:

You cant take backup of the image. However, if you need image, TAC can help you get it given that you have a valid contract for your PIX.
