Re: 2621 Router - copy flash tftp error

If this is a Sun box you're trying to copy to, it could be a permissions issue. You can't "create" a file on a Sun box via TFTP without having the file (or similar named) there first. Without global permissions you'll have to "touch filename" in the tftp-boot directory (or whereever the TFTP service has been configured to redide)..

Hope that helps.
