how to copy config?

hi guys,

I am trying to copy the configuration of two pix firewalls 515, to a folder that is located on one of the server.
I tried from the #copy run config \\coputername\foldername(Share), and that didn't work.
please help me out because I am going to make some changes and I wanna be able to role back the config in case I crew up something.
I also need the way to copy the config back to the pix.

thanks a lot guys

The example used is straight from a PIX firewall

There are many free TFTP servers that you can download. I use Pumpkin from http://www.klever.net
Just search google for "free tftp server" for your operating system.

>and also add to it that the server doesn't have a tftp loaded
You cannot copy it to any server without tftp

Assuming that you have tftp server loaded on the computer

On each pix, add the following config line
PIX(config)#tftp-server 10.1.1.42 /filename.txt

Where the ip address = your tftp server
The file will be located in the TFTP server's root directory
Be sure that the TFTp server is configured to accept all files

Now you can use "write net" command to send a copy of the config to the tftp server.
Use "config net" to copy the config back to the server:
PIX(config)#config net [[server_ip]: [filename]]
Example:
PIX(config)#configure net 10.1.1.42:/filename.txt

Keep one think in mind - this "merges" the existing config with the new config, it does not replace it.

that's all good, and it will help me a lot, but can you do me a big favor, and give an example of doing that with a pix fire wall using the same IP addrsss you used , and also add to it that the server doesn't have a tftp loaded.
where will I get the tftp to load it on the server??

thanks a lot for your time and attention.
