Backup Cisco PIX vpdn user configuration?

Hi there,

I have a cisco pix 515 and its going to be replaced with a bigger model. I really really need to be able to backup all the user vpdn configurations on the pix:

vpdn username support password ********

Like that. But as you can see the password is stored as *******.

Is there any way to backup this config? (i know, should have used radius or tokens or something...).

Do a scan on Google and get a free tftp server.
On the PIX, you can then write the running-config to the tftp server and save it.

Usage:   write net [<tftp_ip>]:<filename>

is it possible that write net only works locally ? Because I just installed 2 tftp servers, one at home and one at the office, and they are both not reachable from the clients pix using write net. (forwarded udp 69 on both locations).

answered my own questions. When u use the tftp-server command you can define a tftp server on the unsecure ethernet0 interface. thnx.

The one in the office should work fine as long as tftp can traverse the ports/acl#s OK.
make sure you have fixup tftp in the conf as well
