Configuration txt file Copy via TFTP or copy and paste, which one is recommended ?
Posted on 2007-11-18
If I have got a router out of the box (does not have any configuration, and I am working directly on a console), to configure this router which configuration is recommended (better or advisable) , to copy a txt file via TFTP to the running-config, or copy and paste from txt to the terminal of the router ?
Because there were an argue that : copy txt file via TFTP produces less error than copy and paste to a terminal.
Of course for I have to setup minimal configuration to be able to use tftp.
Please do not involve in the explanations of how to configure them.
The reason I am asking this question when I copied and pasted from a txt file to our router and issued a command show tech , I realized after while that 15 lines of ACLs entries were missing from the output of the show tech,,,,I do not why!!!!
