    Re: IOS filesystem

    Hello,
    Thanks for your post!
    The Cisco IOS Filesystem (called IFS) is Cisco proprietary. It isn't anything like DOS or NTFS or EXT3. It is Cisco's own layout.
    Now, when you access the IFS from a router, switch, or firewall, it does behave like conbination of DOS & Linux. For example, on some models you can cd into a directory and the dir command works.
    Here is a link on how to use the Cisco IFS
    http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/...prt2/fcifs.htm

    If you have a specific question on how to use the IFS, I would be glad to help out on that.

    Thanks again for posting!
