I am trying to copy running config to startup config on a PIX.

I am typing

pixfirewall# copy running-config startup-config

And getting this back.  Is my syntax wrong again?


Usage:  copy capture:<capture-name> tftp://<location>/<pathname> [pcap]
        copy http[s]://[<user>:<password>@]<location>[:<port>]/<pathname>
                flash[:[image | pdm]]
        copy tftp[:[[//location][/pathname]]] flash[:[image | pdm]]

Write mem does work.  Does that essentially do the same as copy running-config startup-config?

exactly the same - on old router configs using old IOS's this command works, even in some new routers the old commands still work, but for some reason they kept it on the PIX IOS onstead of the "copy run start" that most Cisco-ites are used to these days

another command to write down is

 write net <ip address>:run

to back up to a TFTP server (use 3C deamon to back up all your configs using this command, then you can restore the firewall in seconds if it goes down :)
And thanQ
