Can someone tell me if its possible to convert a running config into a TFTP format without a TFTP Server?
Basically, I'm connected to a virtual lab where the administrators won't allow its members to connect to TFTP Servers. Therefore, I was wondering if I could convert a running config into TFTP format? If that's possible I would then send the file to the device via a hyperterminal or SecureCRT.
I thought tftp servers transfer for the files in a particular format over port 69?
I'm not sure transfering a txt file to a router would pick up all the configurations? For example, there are certain modes I would need to be in and txt file may not recognise the mode. e.g. if I were in interface config mode and I needed to be in vlan interface configuration mode I don't think the router would pick it up.
The protocol itself runs over port 69, like FTP runs over 21, but it doesn't change the format of the file itself. You can send the file to a tftp server with whatever filename you want to send it as, but it's still plain text.
When you copy the text file to the router, assuming you're copying over startup-config, then you'll type:
running config into a TFTP format without a TFTP Server?
There is no such thing as a "TFTP format". You need a TFTP server to transfer files from your appliance to your PC client.
For example, when you do the command "sh run | redirect tftp:///filename.txt" the appliance will copy the running-config into your TFTP server as the file you've specified, i. e. "filename.txt".
Now, if you are using Windows, the you FIRST have to open this file using any other word processing EXCEPT Notepad. You can open using Wordpad. The reason is because Notepad cannot "see" or "understand" the unix carriage return. If you open using Wordpad and then click "Save", then this file can now be opened using Notepad.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
