Re: backup restore configurations

Hi,

when i execute the following command :

copy flash:config.text tftp:

i get :

%Error opening tftp://192.168.0.1/config.text (Timed out)

about the tftp, should i install a specific software on my machine ? where will the config.text file be stored ?

Re: backup restore configurations

Try pinging from the switch to the TFTP Server. Chances are there is something there blocking the traffic. Windows firewall or VPN software will block it. I could ping from the server to the switch but not the other way around and had to disable the VPN security policy for it to work.

Yes.You could download a free copy from http://www.solarwinds.com.

config file will be stored in the base/root directory path set on the tftp application.
