Hi sqiri,

Here is basic configuration steps for Cisco 1841:

Regarding backup and restore:
copy running-config flash:<config_name>
copy running-config tftp:
(it will ask you for destination IP address and filename).

Hope this helps!

Now I realized I forgot to write restore procedure:

copy flash:<config_name> startup-config
copy tftp:  startup-config
(it will ask you for TFTP source IP address and filename).

After copying reboot router or ASA without writing configuration.
