Re: %Error opening tftp://

Do you mean that you want to copy the running-config to the TFTP server? Can you ping your TFTP server from your switch? If yes, then the command should be something like

copy running tftp://1.1.1.1/SW1_run.txt

1.1.1.1 is the TFTP server IP address. I just use that as a sample, sorry for the confusion.

Gopinath,

Hi, How are you doing?

- To make sure that the tftp service is already running. Winbox, a "netstat -an" command will reveal the tftp port that is already waiting for the connection or not. UDP/69 is what you must see there.

- Don't tell me that you're having a personal firewall runing on your computer. Please stop it for a while or try to manaully allow the connection to TFTP port if you can. (grin)

HTH,

Be sure your local firewall is off and be sure you have your TFTP server actually up and running on the location you are transferring the file to.

Re: %Error opening tftp://

The syntax is "copy ". So if you want to copy the switch config to the tftp server, then it's

copy flash:config.text tftp:///

Alternatively, if you want the running config then it's

copy running tftp:///

Another method is to do a sh run command and log it into a notepad or something. Then save the notepad into the TFTP server.
