see my website here

http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Firewalls/Cisco/backuprestore.htm

however on a v6 firewall which you have, when you restore a config it MERGES is with the config on the firewall it DOES NOT  replace it
to get round that put the following command at the top of the "backed up" config.

clear config all

Hi Pete.

I followed the instruction on your web site but got a FAILEd message.

You site mentioned that port 69 need to be open  ?

How do I check and how do I open it ?

Thanks

Ian

Yes, port 69 UDP incoming needs to be open on the computer you're running the TFTP server on.
Also, make sure you're on the same network (LAN segment) because TFTP is a broadcast protocol and generally won't work between routers and will never work over VPN.
Cheers! Let me know if you have any questions!

should be open by default  - -does the machine in question have a windows/or other vendors firewall enabled? or does it have multiple network cards?
