Hi ,

For some reason I really want to make my cisco router make scheduled backups every time I make write(change config).
OK thats very good here is my cisco config

log config
logging enable
notify syslog
path tftp://
time-period 4320

But .... I wish to make it not with Linux and I want to make it on my laptop ... why ?? I don't know I just want to make it work.

I try 3 different Mac os x TFTP servers also try Snow Leopard tftpd but I have problem with permissions

sh-3.2# sudo launchctl
launchd% load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
launchd% cd /private/

OK now tftpd starts and working NO firewall block him.

Then we do on Cisco this

Router_g1r5#copy start tftp
Address or name of remote host []?
Destination filename [router_g1r5-confg]?
TFTP: error code 2 received - 16739

%Error opening tftp:// (Permission denied)

AND BOOM permission denied . I have 777 permissions and SUID GID with running user.
For some reason I see this with Fedora Tftpd or other tftpd server this is security on tftpd and you CAN'T create files

OK it works if i create blank file with this name :

from my Mac os x BOX
sh-3.2# touch file
sh-3.2# chmod 777 file


Router_g1r5#copy start tftp
Address or name of remote host []?
Destination filename [router_g1r5-confg]? file
2377 bytes copied in 0.084 secs (28298 bytes/sec)

Can somebody tell me TFTP Server who is working with creating files on OS X.

With my Gentoo and FreeBSD work perfectly but with OS X don't

I know this has been awhile, but why don't you just use FTP thats what I use.

Now I just need syslogd to play ball with the Cisco.
