Gents,
I am trying to copy the running configuration from the swithc to a PC as a txt file through telnet or console.
I do NOT want to write: "show config all" and then I copy / paste the configuration. I have more than 20 switches and this exercise could be repeated many times.
I am using the switch " A2 H124 24FX " Enterasys switch and SolarWInds as an application for the TFTP.
TFTP is installed on Windows server 2003.

I tried the following,
copy Myconfig.cfg tftp:\\151.128.81.2
copy Myconfig.cfg tftp:\\151.128.81.2\TFTP-Root
copy Myconfig.cfg tftp:\\151.128.81.2\c:\TFTP-Root

I do not know what is the exact syntax...

hello ayman,

try to make and netstat -a -n to chek if the tftp port is really open.
Then make a telnet localhost 69
i suspect that the syntax that you are using in the equipement is not the right one, if you have an cisco equipement on your network it will be very helpful we can make a tes with it.

good luck

@ Muhammed-Rummaneh... it is off already.
@ jamil, the TFTP server is working, I updated the firmware through the TFTP for 32 switches (A2, C3 and N3 Enterasys types).
