I appreciate any assistance/help you can give me on this.
I have a new cisco 1721 router which is going to be used in a small office which I'm helping to set up.
I am having problems with the very first part of the install!
I wish to use the Security Device Manager (a web interface) to configure this router.
See this link for more info.
In order to use this I need to tftp the software onto the router, since this router did not come with it pre-installed.I am struggling with this part.
I can console into the router and have set the fastethernet interface to 10.10.10.1 (subnet mask 255.255.255.248)
I have set the ip address of my laptop to 10.10.10.2 (subnet mask 255.255.255.248)
I have downloaded the SDM files on my laptop from the internet, and installed tftp server software on this.
According to documentation I should then be able to attach a crossover cable between these devices and then run the following command:
Router# copy tftp://10.10.10.2/sdm.tar
However no connection can be established and hence I can't load the SDM files which I need to configure the rest of the router.
Note: I have also tried adding the router to the network (say ip address = 10.3.39.250, and then configuring my laptop with an ip address on the same subnet) but still cannot connect between devices. (this time using standard rj45 ethernet cables to connect to the network).
