1) Is there any trap / gotcha wit this?

2) How do I get RCP? Is it part of CiscoWorks?

This is merely a syntax issue. You must replace the keyword "tftp" by rcp.

The link below is for the 4000-series switches but it describes the procedure accurately:

Leo,

I tried your suggestion and this what happens - probably because my server is a TFTP server. So where do I get RCP server software.

I did not expect to work because my Windows XP 192.168.1.10 has no RCP program installed. So where did this file go.

Where can I get a copy of RCP program for Windows XP with instructions on how to install and configure it.
