Good Afternoon Ladies and Gents,
Is there anyway to make catalyst 4500 as FTP server?
I need to copy file between two 4500. So I want to make one as FTP server and other as client.
Any idea? or thought?
I don't know of any FTP servers on these switches. But here's the procedure for the TFTP server:
- on 4500#1: activate the TFTP server and make it point to the IOS image. In your case, it could be "bootflash:", but I'm not sure of it
- on 4500#2, do a "copy tftp flash" and fill in the requested information
Here's a link that may help:
By the way, make sure that both 4500 have connectivity to each other.
You can FTP a file to a Catalyst switch but NOT the other way around.
You can, however, enable TFTP to/from your switch.
All you need is do this:
config t tftp flash:filename.extension end
