Simple config question for tftp

Sorry for such a dumb question but I am drawing a blank on this one.  5406zl switch - I don't have the ability to tftp a new version of the software to it.  I only have usb and xmodem available as an option to me.  I just don't remember what I need to remove in order to get the tftp option back again


configuration example below - with sensitive data removed - Just totally forgot how to turn the tftp ability back on

Re: Simple config question for tftp



Your "no tftp client" entry will do that. Just get rid of that and it should work again.

Re: Simple config question for tftp

As a bonus: sometimes you can only configure 'tftp client' after you have removed a line that enables SCP protocol (cant remember the exact command). It seems that one is not in your config though.

The ProCurve Manager software likes to add these two lines at discovery-time (no exactly always, though...) So keep in mind that by changing that, you may break the copy-stuff (backups/updates) that your PCM might have been configured to do...
