Cisco Running Config Conversion to TFTP Format

Hello Experts,

Sorry for the poor headline.

Can someone tell me if its possible to convert a running config into a TFTP format without a TFTP Server?

Basically, I'm connected to a virtual lab where the administrators won't allow its members to connect to TFTP Servers. Therefore, I was wondering if I could convert a running config into TFTP format? If that's possible I would then send the file to the device via a hyperterminal or SecureCRT.

Cheers

Carlton

depending on the terminal software you are using, can you pipe the output of

sh run

to a text file

That's basically all that happens when using TFTP

As PaulNSW has mentioned you can issue a show run and then copy the running config to a text file.

Or are you looking for something else than that?

There is no special TFTP format

You can actually send the config to a device with the config sections out of order (not following the order listed as per "show run" command

You can also send just relevant sections you want to configure

In some of these situations you might have to "script" the file by adding "config t" to the beginning and "end" "wr mem" to the end
