    Hi Mike,

    Nothing, tried several times and no luck, i followed the steps and no traffic from the AP to my TFTP server, any trick behind these steps?.

    Are you sure the security settings on your TFTP server allows you to send file?

    I just plugged my hat rack into the laptop with the TFTP server using a straight through cat 5 cable and upgraded it to the latest image I had -- worked fine following the instructions.

    I gave my laptop an additional IP -- 10.0.0.2

    I renamed the file I copied to the TFTP-root directory to the required name -- using copy and paste so I wouldn't have to worry about typos.

    I started my TFTP server (SolarWinds)

    Did the mode button start --- and BAM! Watched the light flash and the SolarWinds log screen showing the transfers.

    Accessed the configuration screen (using the 10.0.0.1 IP and the default Cisco/Cisco user/password) using IE.

    My hat rack is a Cisco AIR-AP1120B-A-K9

    Hi Mike,

    I double checked all the settings and they are fine, i always used SW TFTP and no problem, everytime i do the steps i got this error:
    Transmission Failed, Could not find file 'C\TFTP-Root\c1100.k9w7-tar.default'
    

    I using this TFTP always with routers and switches and i never had this error before, sound like the AP can't find the IOS but the IOS is in the TFTP-Root folder.

    What do you think about this?.

    Thanks. icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

    Prove it.
    C:\TFTP-Root>dir c11*
     Volume in drive C is Cdrive
     Volume Serial Number is 0869-E1DC
    
     Directory of C:\TFTP-Root
    
    01/29/2007  02:29p           4,608,000 c1100-k9w7-tar.default
                   1 File(s)      4,608,000 bytes
                   0 Dir(s)   1,664,178,176 bytes free
    
    C:\TFTP-Root>
    

    That's the c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA2.tar file I renamed c1100-k9w7-tar.default - per the instructions.

    Hi Mike,

    I got the same but got .tar after default:

    Directory of C:\TFTP-Root

    05/16/2008 02:04 PM 4,608,000 c1100-k9w7-tar.default.tar
    1 File(s) 4,608,000 bytes
    0 Dir(s) 12,580,993,632 bytes free

    C:\TFTP-Root>

    Could be this?, how can i change that?.

    Thanks. icon_wink.gif

    Yep, that's it. That's why I copy and paste when I can.
    C:\TFTP-Root>help rename
    Renames a file or files.
    
    RENAME [drive:][path]filename1 filename2.
    REN [drive:][path]filename1 filename2.
    
    Note that you cannot specify a new drive or path for your destination file.
    
    C:\TFTP-Root>rename c1100-k9w7-tar.default.tar c1100-k9w7-tar.default
    
    C:\TFTP-Root>
    
    Or you can just do it in Windows -- but if tar is a known extension and you're not displaying known extensions -- that's when you have fun like this. :D
