    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

    Accepted Solution


    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
