Cisco router 2600.. Error opening tftP:

Hello

I'm trying to reconfigure my cisco 2600 router.
I've just reconfigured it, so I could reset the passwords.

No while the router idles in hyper terminal.  I get the following errors

Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/network-confg (Timed out)
Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (Timed out)
Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/myrouter-confg (Timed out)
Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/myrouter.cfg (Timed out)

Please explain the cause and solution.

Thanks

- Jeff

enter

no service config

at the command line

The router is trying to get it's config from a network tftp server. You can turn it off with the above command.

I tried entering ... no service config
It did not work (command was not recgnoized). Invalid input detected at the "no"

At what prompt should I be?
I'm currently at the enable prompt ... myrouter#

Thanks

Oh...
I did it from the config t.

It worked.

Will this be saved automatically ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

type "config t" to enter configuration mode first

no

get back to normal exec mode by typing "end" at the config prompt.

Then type :

copy run start (short for copy running-config startup-config)

or us old tiers do it this way:

write memory

either way should work.

All changes must be suffixed by the write to memory command or a reboot will revert back to what was before.
