Answered Question
Aug 20th, 2010

Hello,

I have downloaded the latest cs mars packages onto my laptop.  I want to import them onto the cs mars device so i can do an upgrade.  Can anyone recommend a simple ftp server software so that i can import packages into cs mars.  I have tried a few already but am having a nightmare getting any of them to work.

Is their any screenshots of how to do this?

regards,

Kevin

I have this problem too.

Hello,

Did you unzip the upgrade file before dowloading the file to MARS?  The 6.0.3 upgrade file should be csmars-6.0.3.3188.zip, which should not be unzipped prior to running the upgrade.

Thanks for that.  I have now made some progress and am successfully connecting from csmars to a FTP server.  I have the packages on the FTP server and and they are downloading across onto the cs mars server but i get this error when they come across.

The catalog in the downloaded file csmars-6.0.3.3188.pkg was corrupted. The file has been deleted by the system.

I have tried 2 other images and they both downloaded ok but also got the same error and were deleted.  I am using csmars version 6.0.2 at the moment and am trying to upgrade it to the latest version so have to upgrade them in sequential fashion starting with 6.0.3

any advice is welcome

Kevin

Yes i did unzip the upgrade file before dowloading the file to MARS.  I'll try again on Monday.

thanks, Kevin

The 3Com ip subnet calculator is a really good one - thanks for that.  I just downloaded the packages again today but didnt upzip them and i was able to ftp them across onto my csmars device successfully.  So now i can start doing my upgrades.
