Hey Experts.  I need to copy the vlan config from a Cisco 2960 to a Cisco 9200.  I have the vlan.dat file copied to my laptop and connected to the 9200 via a console cable.  For some reason, I'm not smart enough to copy the vlan.dat file to the 9200.  Any help in accomplishing this would be appreciated.

Edit:  I should have clarified.  I run into problems copying to the switch as I'm not sure what the command should be.  I used "copy flash:vlan.dat tftp:" to copy from the switch to the laptop (running the tftp software) but haven't nailed down the command to copy from the laptop to the switch.

Apologies for not including that portion of information.
