When i am upgrading the software on my catalyst 4500 the tftp session is timing out.

After copying 50 % of the file all dots are showing and then after a couple of minutes the session is ended.

U squeased the flash, so plenty of space is free on bootflash:

the file is want to uploade is not larger then the bootflash:

(used it on an other 4500 and worked well)

Any idee ?

Some times the TFTP server will not support more than 16MB files and try to upload by FTP or by in rommon mode.
