Download a config from Cisco router or switch

The Config Viewer makes it easy to download configs from your devices.

  1. Click Select Router, and then specify the IP address or host name of the device.
  2. Select community string, or SNMP version 3 credentials.
  3. To test the credentials, click Test.
  4. Click OK.
  5. If prompted, store the credentials you specified in the shared credentials database.
  6. Click Download.
  7. Select the config to be downloaded, currently running config, or the start-up config in the router memory.
  • When downloading a configuration file, the Config Viewer automatically starts the SolarWinds TFTP Server, if required. When running, the TFTP Server icon is displayed in the Windows system tray.
  • To see the TFTP Server log, click the icon, and then click Status on the TFTP Server menu. The TFTP Server log displays any errors that occur during configuration file transfer.
  • Ensure your access list does not block SNMP queries.
