copy in IOS via 2950 console port?

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Charles Bronson, Aug 10, 2004.

  1. I have a 2950 that is borked. If I attach hosts to it they can ping each
    other but no "real" traffic will cross it.I have had the CCNP that comes
    in to help us out with projects look at it and he is baffled by it also.

    My current working theory is that the IOS has become corrupt in some
    fashion and needs to be reinstalled. When I tried this via the
    FastEthernet ports it goes for a few bytes then errors out. What I'm
    wondering is if their is some way I can copy in the IOS via the console

    Thanks for any help or suggestions you can offer.

    1.. Type confreg 0x2142 and press Enter at the > prompt to boot from flash
    without loading the startup configuration stored in NVRAM. Other common
    configuration register settings are as follows:
    2.. 0x2102 - The most common setting. This boots the router from flash and
    loads the startup-config
    3.. 0x2101 - Bypasses the flash and loads from the Boot image located on
    the Boot ROM. This is also the setting to use if your flash is set to read
    only and you need to change it to read/write in order to upgrade the IOS

    Does it error after a few bytes or a few packets?
    Has someone changed the MTU either on the PCs or the switch ports?
