Hi

Your router needs an ios to boot its currently booted with the boot image i feel ur ios is either unavailable or you need to boot the same from tftp server...

Re: RouterB(boot)#

I have a CD with 2501 IOS. How do I copy the IOS to TFTP server on the Win XP desktop? Copying the bin file and pasting to tftp/root does not work.

Thanks.

I managed to drag the bin file from the CD to the root of tftp. However, the command copy flash tftp does not work. Any suggestions?

RouterB(boot)#copy tftp flash

RouterB(boot)#copy ?

flh-log

RouterB(boot)#copy tftp ?

% Unrecognized command

RouterB(boot)#copy tftp flash
