Backing up Configuration
Data
It is recommended that configuration data be backed up any time there have been
changes made to the switch configuration that are intended to be permanent.
Ethernet Interface
1. Connect the TFTP server and the switch Ethernet port to a common Ethernet
network. They may be directly connected to each other if an ethernet cross-
connect cable is used.
2. Set the Ethernet IP address of the switch using the SET ether command.
3. If the two are not on the same Ether subnet, and are separated by a rou ter, use
the SET iproute command to direct the switch to the router.
4. Backup the configuration data using the BACKUP config command.
5. To download a backed up configuration into the switch using the
INSTALL config command.
ATM Interface
1. Connect the switch and the workstation (TFTP server) with an ATM-PVC
interface.
2. Setup the ATM-PVC workstation (TFTP server) to use a PVC.
3. Set the IP routing information within the switch such that the switch can upload
the configuration data to a host within a different sub network. Use the
SET iproute command.
4. Backup the configuration data using the BACKUP config command.
5. To download a backed up configuration into the switch, use the
INSTALL config command.
