Isaac was trying to implement the HTTP PUT solution I’ve described in the IP Corner article Using a Web Server to Manage Your Router Configurations. He couldn’t get IIS or Apache to work and finally discovered that he was facing an IOS problem. When he’s upgraded the routers to IOS release 12.4(20)T or 12.4(22)T, the copy running-config http://host/path command worked as expected.
Isaac, thanks for the feedback!
