1.  All traffic is allowed out by default unless you have an outbound access list stopping same.  Pls post config for details.

2.  If you download Solarwinds tftp server from

and you wish to copy the config to a pc ip for example

logon to pix

write net

this creates the file pixconfig in the Solarwinds tftp folder

copy tftp:// running-config

Where is tftp server and pixconfig is the name of the config file located in its tftp folder

This will make the config run straight away as its going to the running-config

To copy it to startup-config

copy tftp:// startup-config
