Save IOS printouts in a file

IOS release 12.2(13)T (integrated in IOS release 12.3) has added the capability to redirect output of an IOS show command to a file. This feature uses Unix-style pipes (similar to the include, exclude and section keywords) and adds append, redirect and tee (redirect + print) keywords.

The show output can be redirected to a local filename (in flash, on usb token or even in NVRAM) or sent to a remote server (currently only FTP and TFTP servers are supported). For example, the show ip interface brief | redirect ftp://student:lab@192.168.0.10/ifstatus command will store the current interface status to an FTP server.

Note: the append (or tee /append) operation only works on destinations that support the file append operation: class-C flash file systems, local disks, USB tokens and NVRAM.
