I want to load an ios on a 7613 router and 6509 switch, these ios's are on my pc. has someone done this before and which tftp server software did you use, do you have a detailed step by step procedure? your assistance would be greatly appreciated. before I forget the image size is 128MB
You will need access to the Internet for your PC to download the TFTP server software. After you have downloaded the software to your PC then you need to install the software.
After you have installed the TFTP server software you need to connect your PC on a LAN which connects to your router and switch. Your PC needs to have an IP address which establishes IP connectivity between your PC and your router and switch. Then you run the TFTP software on your PC. The details of how to point the TFTP software to the directory/folder where the image file is located may vary depending on which software you are running for TFTP.
Then on the router and on the switch you need to copy the image file from TFTP to the disk. The syntax may vary a bit depending on the model of equipment but is something like:
copy tftp: flash:
then the copy process will prompt for a couple of things including the address of the TFTP server and the name of the image file to copy. Then the copy process will copy the image file from your PC to your router or switch.
There is a Freeware I use, Pumpkin TFTP Server. Fairly stable and can really take good amt of load.
