I have been trying to reload my IOS onto a Aironet 1300 Wirelesss Bridge, but I'm having issues with the FTP.  Does anyone know if using the FTP is the best route, or if there are any know issues using FTP?  This is the path that I'm using:


archive download-sw /overwrite /reload ftp:[[//*****:*****]@10.*.*.*]/ftp]/c1310-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEA3.tar

Error opening  <Invalid IP address or hostname>


Is there anything wrong with the link?


Thanks,


Daniel

It looks like you have some extra brackets in the line.Below is what the format should look like.  Is this what you have?


archive download-sw /overwrite /reload ftp://user:password@x.x.x.x/ftp/c1310-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEA3.tar


If you still have issues with FTP you could try TFTP.  It works fine.  I would stay away from HTTP.
