Erased router now get %Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg

Hello,

I have just erased the config off an 1841 router and put my new config on and now I'm getting loads of these messages, what are they:

Router#

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/router-confg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/ciscortr.cfg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/network-confg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/router-confg (Timed out)

Can I get rid of these?  Seems to be broadcasting to a tftp server in hope of finding a config, but I have put my config back on.

Thanks

a router does try to load config from tftp during startup. and the same is happening here.

You should set the boot system flash and set the running config.

Hi,

copy your new running config to startup config and get sure the confreg value is set to 0x2102 with sh version command and if it is not then change it with global config command config-register 0x2102

Regards.

Alain.

Take out from the config the Command "Service config", and you should be fine.

no service config

Hi Andy,

I experienced the same issue on a Cisco 2811. To get rid of this error you need to perform the following steps:

From the Router> prompt enter into Priviliged Mode and disable the configuration service with the following commands:

Router>enable

Router#configure terminal

Router(config)#no service config

Router(config)#exit

Router#copy running-config startup-config

Destination filename [startup-config]?

Building configuration...

[OK]

Router#Reload

Proceed with reload? [confim]

After the system boots you should not experience the issue any longer
