Cisco – Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg

KB ID 0001099 Dtd 20/08/15

Problem

A friend was rolling out some PC's for a client and wanted me to give him a network with the same subnet etc so he could build everything on the bench.

tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg

I grabbed a router and set it up for DHCP, and to NAT all traffic for him, but annoyingly it kept doing this;

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (timed out)

%SYS-4-CONFIG_RESOLVE_FAILIURE: System config parse from (tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg) failed

Solution

Quite a simple one to fix, whilst connected via console/SSH do the following;

Petes-Router#configure terminal  Enter configuration commands, one per line.

Petes-Router(config)#no service config  Petes-Router(config)#exit  Petes-Router#copy running-config startup-config
