Hi


Your router needs an ios to boot its currently booted with the boot image i feel ur ios is either unavailable or you need to boot the same from tftp server...

I have a CD with 2501 IOS. How do I copy the IOS to TFTP server on the Win XP desktop? Copying the bin file and pasting to tftp/root does not work.

Thanks.
