TFTP Help

I am trying to put an image back onto an Access point.

I have followed the guide which is on this site and it is not working for me.

Here are the stages i have done so far.

Set up TFTp server and set my IP to 10.0.0.5.

Reset access point, while connected to hyperterminal, and can see that its looking for the file which is on the computer which im connected to.

This is what comes up on hyperterminal:

ap: Xmodem file system is available.1200-k9w7

flashfs[0]: 2 files, 1 directories

-tar.default

flashfs[0]: 0 orphaned files, 0 orphaned directoriestp://255.255.255.255/c1200-k9w7-tar.de

button pressed for 24 seconds

The system is unable to boot automatically because there

are no bootable files to boot.

ap:

While this is happeneing the tftpd32.exe is saying this:

ap:

Read request for file <c1200-k9w7-tar.default>. Mode octet [25/04 14:06:35.737]

TIMEOUT waiting for Ack block #1 [25/04 14:06:50.789]

Im may be wrong but could it be something to be with the tftp://255.255.255.254, as my server is running on 10.0.0.5.

Is there anyway in which i can change this, or allow the file transfer to happen.

Thanks

Sorry,

The tftp server was just saying this:

Connection received from 10.0.0.1 on port 1024 [25/04 14:06:35.647]

Read request for file . Mode octet [25/04 14:06:35.737]

TIMEOUT waiting for Ack block #1 [25/04 14:06:50.789]

Thanks

Ya, i am getting the same issue, with my Cisco Aironet 1100 AP, Do you know if you ever got your issure resolved or did you just call the Tech Line.. If you could let me know i would greatly apprecieate that

Hi,

One thing which really helped me was this guide:

http://forum.cisco.com/eforum/servlet/NetProf?page=netprof&forum=Wireless%20-%20Mobility&topic=General&CommCmd=MB%3Fcmd%3Dpass_through%26location%3Doutline%40%5E1%40%40.1dda31cb/0#selected_message

Im not sure if that link will work, but if theres any problems you can email me on

Hope that helps

i have FOUND THE FIX SET IP TO 10.0.0.1, 255.0.0.0 AND DEFAULT GATEWAY TO 10.0.0.0

I have followed all these steps and still have a problem with the AP reporting "Permission Denied".

Anyone resolved this.

May I ask what procedure you are using to upgrade your IOS? You have a link?

I have found TFTP to be somewhat flaky. It does not seem to like upgrading via the command line but if I upgrade using TFTP via the browser then I am fine.

I use the Solarwinds TFTP client.

I use the same tftp client.

Only issues I have is sometime i forget to turn of any firewall or checkpoint software that is bound to that nic card on my laptop that I am using for the upgrade.

The procedure I use is to tar from a tftp server after having set the ip address etc, which always seems to fail. No firewall sw running on the pc either.

The procedure is as described in the 1200 recovery procedure document, which actually uses screen dumps from a 350 so I do wonder.

Incidently I did try renaming the image I had to be the same as the default requested image as per the documentation and hitting the mode button, but that didn't work either. Got some message about priveledges or something. At which point both the AP and laptop came very close to going out the window.

This isn't rocket science and I wonder how quite a few people could be having the same issues.

Hello,

I had in the past often recovered the AP image.

Sometimes it was necessary :

ap:flash_init

ap:reset

Importend IP address client: between 10.0.0.2 ..30/8

File : c1200-k9w7-tar.default(renamed original file)

I use 3Com TFTP server

regards Ulrich

You might find this document handy.

ap: set

DEFAULT_ROUTER=10.0.0.1

IP_ADDR=10.0.0.3

NETMASK=255.0.0.0

ap: tftp_init

ap: tar -xtract tftp://10.0.0.2/c1200-k9w7-tar.default flash:

tftp://10.0.0.2/c1200-k9w7-tar.default: permission denied

This is after renaming the file to be the same as the default requested file.

Is your tftp server's permissions set correctly?

I got the same issue on TFTP "TIMEOUT waiting for Ack block #1".

 

The problem was that when we download the IOS Autonomous from the Cisco website, it´s a ZIP file, so we MUST copy this original file ZIP on the TFTP folder, instead of open the ZIP file and copy the archive to the TFTP Folder. My firewall is disable as well.
