    cisco catalysts 2950 / 3550 (Cisco IOS)
    and Cisco PIX 501

    The 2950 and 3550 you should be able to do via SNMP. It takes
    a few SNMP commands to set up properly, but it's not that long a
    sequence as far as I recall.

    None of the PIX series support saving or retreiving the
    configuration via SNMP commands -- SNMP support on the PIX series is
    very limited. For the PIX 501, you will need to use something like
    an 'expect' script -- or you may be able to adapt one of the perl modules
    that is on .

    Take a look at They have a program called "Kiwi
    CatTools" which can do the job and a lot more.

  4. Send an snmp set command to .<tftpserver_ip>. Value to
    set is the destination filename. (on most unix tftp servers, this file must
    already exist and be world writable).

    Example for a linux system:

    snmpset -t 15 -r 5 <router_ip> <rw_community>
    ..<tftp_ip> s "<filename>"

    Hope this helps,

    Hello together,
    after testing many different tools an solutions now I have a very nice
    the netcat tool (
    can script telnet actions.

    On my windows maschine I have on script (switch.txt):


    copy run tftp

    a batch file that look like that
    nc.exe Catalyst-IP < switch.txt
    rename cat-running.txt cat-running--%date%.txt

    After the batch is running a have the config file from my catalyst with the
    acctualy date of saving this.
    the same you can do with flash:config.text, flash:vlan.text ...
