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
