I'm trying to copy a new IOS from a laptop to the router via console port using hyperterminal.

I'm trying to change the console port speed and the 7204 does not like it.


This is what i am getting...

WWWRouter(config)#

WWWRouter(config)#line con 0

WWWRouter(config-line)#speed 115200

Failed to change line 0's speed

WWWRouter(config-line)#


Can you guys tell me why i can;t change the speed?

Thank you,

Zeek

Hello Zeek,

it is probably an older npe.


your config should be:


ip routing

int f0/0

ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0

no shut


you give 10.10.10.2 255.255.255.0 to your PC


you activate tftp server


from router

with dir /all verify if you have space on flash


verify you can ping the PC you need a cross-over cable or put both on two ports of a switch.


copy tftp flash

it will ask you all the parameters one per line


Hope to help

Hello Zeek,

configure a LAN interface and use TFTP that is faster.


if it is an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 you can use the built-in GE ports


just remember to put

media-type rj45 under GE config


so that you can connect to a switch or directly with a crossover cable and a laptop

with TFTP server running


Hope to help

I can see only 1 available fast ethernet port.

do you mind sending me a simple config for it, please?
