secure web console firmware location?

unsolicited rant:
for great laughs , enter J3591A where it says "enter product name & number" after hitting drivers & software from the main HP screen...

Now that I'm done laughing, can someone *please* post where the firmware updates are for the secure web console? I give up after an hour of searching, and I'm an HPUX admin!

Re: secure web console firmware location?

This should help;

http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/hw/swc/secureweb/firmware_update.html

Here's how I got to it;
www.docs.hp.com
click browse by topic
systems hardware
secure web console
click html link for swc
click the swc button

This is info for the swc, one link has f/w updates (url above) with instructions and the ftp where to download.

Hope this helps

Re: secure web console firmware location?

I had actually seen this page, I didn't realize that these (semi-) useful tidbits were in there:

Use the HP FTP site (192.151.11.37) and path (/dist/webconsole/XX.X) to transfer the following files to your local FTP server in binary mode:

APPLICATION.ROM
BOOTSTRAP.ROM
RESOURCES.ROM
upgrade.cnf

How do you know what XX.X is? Does anyone have a valid/recent one > 1.7?

Thanks for your help!

Re: secure web console firmware location?

XX.X refers to the f/w version; there's only one directory out there, /dist/webconsole/A2.0.

I'm not sure where (or if) earlier releases of the firmware are available online. What version is it at now? The A2.0 dir contains the latest version. Maybe the version/bug history could also help.

Hi Robert,

I can see version A2.0 over there, so this should be newer than 1.7. the process is,

ftp docs.hp.com
username : anonymous
password : your_email_add

cd /dist/webconsole/A2.0
bin


download the files.

Hope this helps.

Robert,

It's their lame excuse for a "search engine", if you can call it that.

I think you should have gone for this one:

hp jetdirect ex plus print server J2591a

Re: secure web console firmware location?

haha--I saw that in my results, too. At least we have some consistency.

are we going to get censored for this kind of blasphemy?

I love HP's hardware and HPUX to death, but the usability/searchability & speed of the very technical parts of the site need major work...

I've been asked to seek out other alternatives (being in R&D) because of the proposed ComPuke and HP merger. No two computer companies have ever merged successfully.

Re: secure web console firmware location?

I spent days coming up with useless search
results and missing documents before I finally found the Documentation.

Th FTP site has the foolowing README.txt:

---------------------------------------------
THIS SITE DOES NOT PROVIDE THE LATEST FIRMWARE DOWNLOADS!

This webconsole FTP site at docs.hp.com (/dist/webconsole/ at 192.6.165.37)
will continue to provide version A2.0 until it is no longer needed.

In the future, the latest webconsole firmware will always be available through
IT Resource Center patch hub at: http://www.itrc.hp.com
---------------------------------------------

And of course, the firmware is nowhere to be
found on the itrc site.

I found that if you put in the IP address and directory information into the upgrade screen of the Secure Web Console (see attached picture); the firware upgrade will proceed and work successfully. Good luck. Sean
