Re: Can a Router or Switch will act as FTP Server?
The command that you have mentioned configures the FTP username/password, that the router will use, when you try to copy something ( IOS image) from an external FTP server to flash.
For. Ex. After you have supplied the FTP username /password, by using the command "IP Ftp username and password ..
When you initiate the following command,
router#>copy ftp: flash:
Then the router will ask you the ip address if the external ftp server, the filename with full path. It will use the username/password that you have configured earlier to logon to the external FTP server and get the files copied to the flash:
You can configure the router to act as a TFTP server, so that you can copy the ios images from the router to another.
