Cisco 2600 Route

hi,

I am trying to tftp the startup-config file from a Cisco 2600 Router over the internet [i.e from it's outside interface - the access-lists allow port 69 from and to any address 12.1(7). When I try to execute copy startup-config tftp in priv exec mode - I receive timeout error messages on my tftp server. I tried a few different ones since the Boson one crashed. I receive the error "file already in use by a another process, then it fails the copy? Am I missing something here? I though it was easy to backup a router? Why is the file in use?

thanks in advance to any suggestions.

Re: Cisco 2600 Route

Make sure your ip tftp source-interface (command) is the same as in the other routers access list.

router(config)#ip tftp source-interface x.x.x.x

This tells tftp traffic to source from that interface.

Re: Cisco 2600 Route

Please confirm the OS of tftp server.

Best way to backup IOS /configure is use ftp.Before use ftp,please modify the configure of router as:

ip ftp user XXX

ip ftp password XXXXX

then use priv exec command: copy flash: ftp://x.x.x.x
