copy ftp flash function changed?

I'm used to using FTP to load images onto routers, recently I notice that this appears to have stopped working.

The 3 commands I use in the router are:

ip ftp user <name>

ip ftp password <password>

no ip ftp passive

Then issue the command `copt ftp flash' and fill in the requested details.

In routers running later IOS versions this now hangs, the initial connection is made but then the process stops.

If I reset the FTP server the router detects the connection closure, so the command channel is still active.

I've tried this on several PC's now directly connected, has anyone else come across this??

Try this command:

copy ftp:[[[//[username[:password]@]location]/directory]/filename] flash-filesystem:[filename]

example:

copy ftp://user:psw@x.x.x.x//ftpdir/rsp-boot-mz.122-23.bin bootflash:

FTP is way to go, but you can make your life even more simpler by configuring the following global commands:

ip ftp username <username>

ip ftp password <password>

then just go for ' copy ftp flash '

BOOM
