Taking backup config and flast of cisco router 2600

hi experts,

i am new to this cisco networking. I purchased 2 routers of 2600 model and I was reading a book of how to backup the routers.

1. I installed the tftp server on my lab laptop. I pluged my console cable to the router and ran the hyperterminal. please note that there is no configuration on the router yet.

2. I tool an ethernet cable - straight and connected to the E0/1 port of the router to the laptop. I put a static ip on my laptop 172.16.1.100 SM 255.255.0.0

3. I did no shut on E0/1 interface of the router and also put the IP address 172.16.1.1 255.255.0.0.

for some reason from the laptop I can pint 172.16.1.1 but from the router session I can not pint the laptop IP 172.16.1.100. I get ping rate of 0%.

The COPY TFTP STARTUP-CONFIG --> gives me an error that it can not open.

Thanks,
LVL 4

Agree with Jan. Typically if you can ping the router from the pc, but not the other way around, it is usually because of the firewall on the PC. Same reason it will not let tftp work.

Windows Firewall or any HIPS is preventing the pings from being replied. Temporarily disable those.
