Modifying and Transfering Configuration Files

Hi,

I need to modify the startup-config file from a 6500 switch and then transfer it via ftp to another 6500 switch. I'm not sure what format I should use to save the file.I'm using notepad to edit the file. If I save the file with ANSI encoding, will the switch be able to read the file? If not,what is the best way to do this?

If you copy the config file via FTP to your workstation and edit the file in notepad, you can copy it to the new switch (via FTP) and the new switch should read it just fine. You could always copy-n-paste too, but that's a little slow.

HTH and please rate.

It looks to me like ANSI would be the format to use. When I edit a config retreived by TFTP it appears to be using ANSI formatting.
