Solution
When in switching mode (default) or router mode (optional for the C3 and C2), any entered configurations are implemented immediately, becoming part of the active configuration which is saved to NVRAM and is thus persistent upon any system reboot. No additional save operation is necessary. 

However, it is advisable to save configurations against the possibility of future loss due to hardware failure, human error, etc. What follows are the commands necessary to perform these manipulations. 

Here is an example view of the SecureStack's directory structure before any configurations are copied to it:
 C2(rw)->dir

A configuration may be saved for future use, by copying it from its active NVRAM-based state to a file in the local 'configs' directory (5879):
 C2(rw)->show config outfile configs/mysave.cfg
C2(rw)->dir

From the SecureStack's local directory, a configuration file (mysave.cfg, in this case) may be uploaded for safekeeping to a PC/machine running a TFTP Server application. First, start and minimize a TFTP Server application. If you don't have one, you can download one free of charge. Then, execute a 'copy' command specifying the source and destination file paths, as shown in the following example:
 C2(rw)->copy configs/mysave.cfg tftp://10.10.143.123/mysave.cfg
File transfer operation completed successfully.

From a network PC/machine running a TFTP Server application, a configuration file (mysave.cfg, in this case) may be downloaded to the SecureStack's local directory. Note that this file may have been generated by this or another SecureStack, manually created, manually edited, and/or copied. First, start and minimize a TFTP Server application. If you don't have one, you can download one free of charge. Then, execute a 'copy' command specifying the source and destination file paths, as shown in the following example:
 C2(rw)->copy tftp://10.10.143.123/mysave.cfg configs/mysave.cfg

The SecureStack may be booted onto a configuration previously saved into its local directory:
 C2(rw)->configure configs/mysave.cfg
This command will reset the system and clear current configuration.
Are you sure you want to continue (y/n) [n]?y
Copy OK: 2149 bytes copied
(System will now reset with new configuration)
