Hi All,

I keep getting this error when attempting to copy running-config to tftp 
from a Cisco Catalyst2900 to a Fedora3 box,

Switch#copy run tftp
Address or name of remote host []?
Destination filename [running-config]?
%Error opening tftp:// 
<javascript:newWin('')> (Undefined error)

I've confirmed that tftp is running/connected,

tftp> status
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Mode: netascii Verbose: off Tracing: off
Rexmt-interval: 5 seconds, Max-timeout: 25 seconds

I've allowed access via port69 for the source in my firewall. I've made 
the dir, tftpboot, permissions write enabled for others. Anyone know 
what I may have forgotten..? Cheers.

Switch=Cisco Catalyst2900
Eth1= nics-Eth0=
Both can ping each other
If I block the source, the Firewall shows the attempt via port69(which 
proves the switch is doing what it is asked to do)
I will try the other way, just to see. And, will also try from 
Windows2000 using SolarWinds' TFTP app. Cheers.

Mark Sargent.
