I am looking to implement router backups in our environment. Unfortunately my workplace does not want to spend a dime on a backup solution, so I was thinking about sending the configs from the routers using kron command to a FTP server inside our network. I am hitting a snag right of the bet on this part.
I have a local Router that is directly connected to a switch, on the switch I have a server setup with a FTP server. Gave it a userrname password and port number and a shared directory. when I try to copy the running config to it I get an error saying (incorrect login/password) on the router
c881#copy running-config ftp://172.30.200.61/R1.txt
Address or name of remote host [172.30.200.61]?
Destination filename [R1.txt]?
%Error opening ftp://172.30.200.61/R1.txt (Incorrect Login/Password)
I did a traceroute to make sure that the FTP port is ok, and it is. I have also remotely connected to the lab's FTP server from my workstation using the username and password I set up on the Server.
My question is why is the router giving me the incorrect login? There is no option to specify username and password..
Also is Kron the right way of doing backups? I have almost 0 resources and I am not a scrip writer to write a batch script that will go out and grab the configurations and send it back to me.
