X8500, VPN Access 250/1000: References to Configuration Management
Examples for commands save, copy, put and get (Bootimage 7.1.12 Patch 1) with consideration of internal and external Smart Media Flashcards



1. Preliminary note

  • In the Setup Tool please use the Menu "Configuration Management".
  • For some commands a TFTP server has to be reachable from the router.
  • For some commands an external Flash Media Card (SMFC) is required.
  • There must be no write-protection lable on the flash card.
  • The flash card has to be formatted.
  • File names on the flash card have 8.3 DOS-format.
  • Further notes regarding Configuration Management you will find in the "Software Configuration Guide X8500 Family".
