I need to get some config info off of several switches. The problem is however when I display the info I need to save it to a file. I tried the select all but it doesn't give me all the info. Is there a command to have the telnet session automatically dump the info to a text file or something?
Thanks

    use some terminal software with telenet capabilities - I use On Net Host Suite, but you can download and use PuTTy for free

    I use term emulator called Token 2.  It's free http://www.sofotex.com/Token2-Plus-download_L13802.html

    When you telnet to the host, do Alt+E.  This brings up the capture window.  Click the "REC" button at the bottom.  When you're done, turn off REC and click the disk to save it.

    however are you talking about saving the configs? your best bet in that instance is to sent the config to a TFTP server
    I use 3C deamon to do this, its free and I can back up all my cisco gear to it, it just runs on my laptop
    Download 3Cdaemon
