Baseline 2924 SFP Plus - firmware upgrade failure



I'm trying to upgrade firmware to an old 3com Baseline 2924 SFP Plus (similar to the new HP JE006A)

I've set up a tftp server to transfer the file into the switch.

By switch web interface, the switch complains that the file format is incorrect

Then, I tried by serial console and I got this another error:

Can someone help me?


Re: Baseline 2924 SFP Plus - firmware upgrade failure

Make sure that you copied the binary file to your PC in BINARY mode!  If the file transfer defaulted to ASCII, the upgrade will fail.
