Hi Friend,

I will recommend you to go for solar wind as i always find it perfect for big images even.

You can download that from this link

Re: how to upload image file to C2950 switch?

There are two answers to that question.

1. You have the image on your laptop i guess. Plug your laptop into the switch in vlan 1. Give vlan 1 an ip address. Give your laptop an ip address within the same range of vlan 1. Run a tftp server on your laptop. make sure the file is in the same directory as your tftp server is configured for. On switch do copy tftp: flash:

type in your laptops ip address. Type in the name of the file and press return. Job done. Once the image is on then you need a boot system flash:(file name) in the running congig.

Answer number 2.

2. Go to www.cisco.com and do a search on tftp image.

Ankur,

I have checked the firewall is not turned on.

Is a windows XP machine..To confirm the pinging status, I have tried to ping from other machines and it successful.

thanks.

Re: how to upload image file to C2950 switch?

Hi Friend,

I hope you must have checked evrything but just want to recheck it.

The port to whic hyou machine is connected is on vlan 1 only right. Can you paste the config just for the port.

make sure you have

"switchport mode access"

If possible please paste the "sh run" from switch?

Hi Ankur,

I really want to apologise on my carelessness which i mistaken another cable for tis connection..:D

(DUE to too many cables under my desk for network testing purposes..heheeee......) :D

the ping test is now okay..and the flash file can be pumped in to switches and vice-versa.

thanks again..the case is now really closed.. :)
