Use the command:

configure net

This will use the TFTP server address and file name in the "tftp-server" command you specify.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
Configure net command will merge the configuration from tftp with the running configuration. If you want to get a fresh configuration from tftp;


clear configure all

Then just copy the whole configuration from the tftp file and paste it onto the config mode of the PIX, Ofcourse while connected through console.
