    PIX/ASA: Backup and Restore the Security Appliance Configuration Files
    * Use the tftp-server, config net, and write net Commands to Backup and Restore a Configuration in PIX 6.x or 7.x
    * Use the copy Command to Backup and Restore a PIX 6.x Image
    * Use the copy Command to Backup and Restore a Configuration on PIX/ASA 7.x
    * Use a Terminal Emulation Program to Backup and Restore a Configuration

    On the SolarWind side, make sure you configure security to allow it to receive files

    Captures are for file captures, not your config (And they're much easier to access via HTTPS)

    As Mike said make sure you configure Solarwinds to receive files aswell as send then -

    On 6.x
    write net TFTP IP:/Filename

    e.g. to write your running config as the file MyPixCFG.wri (you don't need to add an extension but it saves time) to a TFTP server running on
    write net

    What I usually do is connect to the pix using the web browser and backing it up this way which shows you all of the encrypted passwords.

    Example if your pix is

    type thse commands in

    http server enable
    http inside (enables your specific workstation to connect to the pix)

    once you do this from your workstation go to
    login and view your configuration
