Export config from TFTP (non-management interface)

L1 Bithead

I was trying to export my running-config.xml with TFTP. It works fine when doing it from the management interface but is not working from any other interface.


If I use the source-ip to export the configuration i get a Timeout even though I can ping my TFTP server with the sourced-ip I'm using to export.


ANything that I need to change or missing to be able to export configuration from a non management interface?


This export is directly from the FW (not using Panorama).

did you make sure the security policy allows this connection to go out ?

In many cases there's a rule in place that can prevent these connections from going out

Thanks for replying.


Well, the thing is that I'm coming from the same inside network. Inside to Inside (intrazone). I dont think I need rules for that since everything is allowed. And I dont have any other device in between blocking traffic. Any other thoughts?

Figured out! Dang! it was my own PC firewall blocking traffic. Allowed port 22 and now is working like charm. Thanks!
