Alternatives to TFTP IOS upgrade?

I need an alternative to upgrading or downgrading an IOS. Is there a secure protocol or method other than plain vanilla TFTP ?

Re: Alternatives to TFTP IOS upgrade?

You have a number of options. You could use either of:

ftp://

http://

https://

rcp:

scp:

For example,

copy ftp://user:pass@192.168.1.1/imagename flash:imagename

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Re: Alternatives to TFTP IOS upgrade?

Or my personal favorite...

I pull the CF card (with the router powered down) and pop it in a CF card adapter. Then I drag-n-drop the new files. If it was just one file I wouldn't do this, but with CME you have to replace all of the GUI files at the same time. I find my PC faster and easier.

Not sure if Cisco supports this or not. Standard disclaimers apply.
