So I am no cisco guy, but I need to have someone help me with some changes we are making to our network. They asked me to email them a config file. As I can't get ahold of them until a point it would probably be useless for them... I need help. I can log into the router fine, and I can 'show run' the config alright. But how do I print that to a txt file? I can both hyperterm to the router, or putty to it. I'm sure this isn't that hard... I just don't know how :)   Thanks!

I also have a ASA 5510 and would like to do the same thing. I'm hoping it will be the same process?

I usually just copy/paste into notepad.

Yeah well... I knew it couldn't be hard. But that was pretty easy. Thanks :)

Hello,

Is there a way to get the configuration at once without hitting the spacebar.

I use teraterm macros to save all configurations, on procurve switches I can use "print 'sh run' " and I don't have to hit space.

Commented:
OK, I found a solution by myself:

You have to specify the terminal properties.
Router:
"terminal length 0" to show all at once.
"terminal no length 0" to resume them
"terminal length x" to set lines to x
 
Pix:
"no pager" to show all at once.
"pager x"  to set lines to x
