copy tftp running                                                             (IP address of remote TFTP server)

%ctGroupName\%ctDeviceName-Config.txt         (Filename to store config to on server)

%ctCR                                                                           (Required to start device TFTP)


[X] Enter commands in enable mode


[X] Save device output to file [Specify the log file name here]


[X] Overwrite existing capture file


[X] Answer yes to any confirmation prompts
