My 6506 sup1a with MSFC goes into Route Processor Ronmon. I believe the MSFC boot image is corrupt while updating.

Trying to use the xmodem -s9600 -c and transfer the 1.8 meg file using the console port. It starts tranferring then hangs, i am using hyperterminal and the send window ( packets and update status freezes and then dissappears after approx 2 minutes). I have tried another laptop with the same results.

Can anyone suggest another solution.

Problem now fixed.

instead of loading the Switch processor with a c6supp11 image i decided to load from pcmcia slot0: a cat600-sup6.1 image , it then went into Route processor Ronmon where i could download the 1.8meg 6msfc boot image without a problem.

After that i had to format the bootflash: and then copy from slot0: using the emergency-download command (hidden option).
