Retrieving Config Files from Cisco CatOS-Based Catalyst Switches

For this procedure you will need to use the Command Line Interface (CLI) of your Cisco device using an SSH client (such as OpenSSH or Putty), Telnet or through the console port. We would recommend using either SSH (for remote connections) or using a direct connection to the console port. Telnet provides no encryption of the communications and therefore your authentication credentials and configuration would be vulnerable if a malicious user were to monitor your connection.
  1. Connect to the Cisco using your favorite SSH client, Telnet or a direct console connection.
  2. Logon using your administration authentication credentials.
  3. Enter \data{enable} and type in your enable password.
  4. Execute the following CLI command and capture the output (possibly using the cut and paste facility):
    show config all
  5. Save the captured output to a file and remove any visible page lines (i.e. --More--).
