Cisco Gurus,
I need your help, i can`t seem to save changes i made to my router. I am fairly new to routing and can`t seem to get this to save. I have recently did a password break and was successfull. But i can`t seem to save any changes i made, i have tried command Copy Start Run and that doesn`t seem to work at all??? what is the right command?
   Thanks Peter

When you say you tried command "Copy Start Run" and it didn't work, try

copy run to startup

this command will copy the running configuration to flash memory

Both are correct. The "book" answer is copy running-config startup-config, "wri mem" is short ver.

When you use the command:
copy start run, you are over-writing any changes you have made with whatever was stored in the startup config.

When you make changes, you are changing the running config not the one in memory, so you must copy run to start to make the changes save to memory.

eumac,
Welcome to EE! Just FYI, it is common courtesy in this forum to only post comments vice answers and let the questioner sort out which comments best answer their particular question. By posting an answer, it locks the question and puts it down into another category where it is often overlooked by other experts who just might have something valuable to add. The whole spirit here is one of collaboration by many experts to help out as much as we can an present many different angles.

Glad to have you here as part of the team and look forward to seeing some of your suggestions.
