I would like to set up a TFTP server to copy configs from my routers and switches. Which one is the best choice of the free ones and I'll need some instructions.

Thanks,

I use their tftp server and it works great with Cisco routers.

I like Pumpkin TFTP. Works with pretty much anything. All you need to do is turn it on and specify the folder you want it to go to. Then just point your routers and switches to your PCs IP address.

I second Pumpkin for a simple to use desktop based system (for occasional use).  The interface is ugly, but it's functional:

Tftpd32 is by far the best :)

very simple,

even has a simple syslog server built in...

but honestly you open it up.

you click the browes button to  the folder you want to server out.

thats it

I have looked at both of these and like TFTPD32. I have installed it but I still can't figure out how to pull the configurations. I see the screen above, but how do I use it. I have used it in the past but someone else had already set it up and I'm sure I'm making this harder than it is, but could you please walk me through it one time. Thanks for everybody's input.

you send the config from the router to the tftp server. use "copy run tftp"

glad you got it sorted out :)

you can also use FTP for switchs and routers, I find that much better and also a bit faster, just set up a anomous user on the FTP server and you can use a

copy run FTP:
