I am new to WAAS and i am trying to upgrade the software of the device. When I went through the documents I could see it says select ftp or http option from the dropdown menu and give the image name(procedure to spacify the image file location in WAAS).
I would like to know what is the difference here in using ftp and http; which scenario I have to select ftp and in which scenario I have to select http
the software file URL (http or ftp) is the location on your network where you will be placing the upgrade *.bin file. Once you download the *.bin file from CCO, you can place the file on an internal http server or ftp server.
Example for http:
(choose http in the drop-down) TAClab.cisco.com/waas/WAAS-4.x.x.x-K9.bin
Example for ftp:
(choose ftp in the drop-down) 10.10.10.10/waas/WAAS-4.x.x.x-K9.bin
This location instructs WAAS as to where the software image can be downloaded from.
