I have attempted to copy from other switch via TFTP and I get it, but upon copying it to the switch for xmodem (copy xmodem: fflash:c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-11.EA1a.bin) And send a similar message to this xmodem:: I/O error

Could they help me with this? that do it occur? I have changed the cable, pc, and the software in order to transfer (TERMINAL HYPER, CRT) and I could not carry out the copy. like making operate the Switch?

Thank You!!!!!!!!!!

If you do this with a laptop connected to the console, try disabling all powersaving features in bios. that solved a similar issue for me.

Oh wait - doesnt it copy anything at all even to you are trying to send the file using hyperterminal (as in the link above)? How soon does the copy interrrupt? What error does hyperterminal giver you?

Re: I can´t start Switch 2950 Series

And when the CC starts you send the file using hyper terminal as in the document? What amount of send/recieve data does hyperterminal report when you are trying to send the file?

Re: I can´t start Switch 2950 Series

Correct, the shipment like a document or file.

By Hiperterminal or CRT doesn't succeed in sending nothing of the file and then send the message xmodem::I/O error

Re: I can´t start Switch 2950 Series

To me it looks like you are sending the file as text instead of X-modem.

But if that is not the case then I have no clue. sorry.

Might want to test other console speeds but I doubt that would make any difference..

Re: I can´t start Switch 2950 Series

no is the case.

I have proven different speeds, but I don't can.

I have proven different speeds, but I don't can.

it is not problem of the team, neither the cable. The message is of the switch.
