Re: IOS Backup

Hi,

Yes,

1. There is another option to take backup with the help of PENDRIVE. If the router has the USB port.

#copy usb flash:FLASH_NAME.bin

2. Via FTP u can also do the same.

#copy ftp:URL_NAME

3.Via http and https u can do the same.

#copy http flash:

Address or Name of remote host []:

Hope it will help you.

Thanks

Re: IOS Backup

Hi,

Sure!!!

As per my 2nd post:

#copy ftp flash:

Address or host name of remote host []? YOUR_FTP_SERVER's_IP_ADDRESS

Source File Name []?Flash_Name.bin

Destination filename []?AS_TYPED_SOURCE_FILE_NAME

#copy http: flash:

Destination filename [http]?

(folloe the same as above)

Not only that you can also copy the runing/startup config.

Thanks
