How do I download or upload a config file using only the CLI?

Jump to solution


I love the command line programing and it makes it easier to see the config at a glance but I cannot seem to figure out how to upload or download a config file from the CLI. Am I restricted to doing this from the GUI or am I missing the obvious like cutting and pasting from the command prompt. Any suggestions would be great. I would also like to be able to do firmware upgrades from CLI as well. Thanks.

You can download and setup a tftp server on your computer then you can type the following to get a copy of the startup config:

copy startup-config tftp

it will as for the remote host. type in your ip: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

next it asks for file name. Type in the filename: config.txt

To upload firmware:

copy tftp flash (enter cflash to upload to cflash)

enter ip as in above example for remote host

enter firmware filename

press enter to just use the default filename
