I've not been having any success backing up to a tftp server and am not sure why. From all that I've read the process seems rather simple, and I'm sure it is, once all of the right configurations are set.
When I open the tftp server window, the ip address of my computer appears, which appears right since I am using my computer as a tftp server.
When I enter the command "copy running-config tftp" I am prompted to enter a host, which I then enter the ip address of my computer. There is only one choice for the next prompt, so I just hit enter. A message is then displayed saying, building configuration. It's then that I see those dreaded "dots" instead of exclamation points.
For those of you who can do this in your sleep, can you offer some direction here? I am using a Cisco 2514 router, by the way.
Thanks in advance!
