Unanswered Question
Jul 8th, 2008

Can anyone please point or direct me regarding installing a new IOS using tftp on Rommon mode. Also is this done using console cable or the crossover cable. I tried using xmodem, but it keeps giving me errors. Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

I keep getting the following error messages

ARP: address resolution for timed out.

ARP failed with failure code 1. TFTP transfer aborted.

TFTP: Operation terminated prematurely.

not sure what the errors are.

what settings are you using?

I would guess

computer derectly connected via cross-over (or an auto sensing nic)

rommon 3 > set

PS1=rommon ! >





then set your computer to

Rommon can be a little glitchy (from my experience) so since its in rommon I'd try to get it to just the router and my computer
