Hello all,\nI have two 2514 routers. The IOS on them are respectively version 10.2 and\n12.2 I would like to upgrade the 10.2 to 12.2. Below is what I did and what\nI got:\n============\n2514 connected to laptop through console and NIC to AUI0 (Xover cable).\nin Hyperterminal:\nconfig t\nint e0\nip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0\nno shut\nthe TFTP SolarWinds has the ip 192.168.2.2 255.255.255.0\nI gave the laptop ip 192.168.2.3 255.255.255.0 with default gateway ip\n192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0\nfrom router:\nGood2514>en\nGood2514#ping 192.168.2.2\n\nType escape sequence to abort.\nSending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.2.2, timeout is 2 seconds:\n......\nSuccess rate is 0 percent (0/5)\nGood2514#ping 192.168.2.1\n\nType escape sequence to abort.\nSending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.2.1, timeout is 2 seconds:\n!!!!!\nSuccess rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 4/4/4 ms\nGood2514#ping 192.168.2.3\n\nType escape sequence to abort.\nSending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.2.3, timeout is 2 seconds:\n......\nSuccess rate is 0 percent (0/5)\nGood2514#\n======================\nHere is a sho run:\nGood2514#sh run\nBuilding configuration...\n\nCurrent configuration:\n!\nversion 12.1\nservice timestamps debug uptime\nservice timestamps log uptime\nno service password-encryption\n!\nhostname Good2514\n!\n!\n!\n!\n!\n!\nip subnet-zero\n!\n!\n!\n!\n!\n!\ninterface Ethernet0\nip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0\n!\ninterface Ethernet1\nno ip address\nshutdown\n!\ninterface Serial0\nno ip address\nshutdown\n!\ninterface Serial1\nno ip address\nshutdown\n!\nip classless\nno ip http server\n!\n!\nline con 0\ntransport input none\nline aux 0\nline vty 0 4\n!\nend\n-\-More-\-\nDo I need to tell the router that there is a TFTP server and give it its ip?\nRemember guys that what is obvious to those who know is ? to the new\ncomers..(I think that the people who write study guides should remember that\nand show the readers all the steps: from connections, to cables, to ports\nused, to commands etc.)In the book I am using, all it says is: before\nstarting the backup, make sure you have a solid connection to the TFTP by\npinging it. Here I am pinging it for 3 days:-)\nAll the help is highly appreciated.\nAhmed.
