Ethernet Submenu

Ethernet Submenu

Before transferring files using the Ethernet submenu, deploy an FTP or TFTP server as the file server and connect the device to the FTP or TFTP server using the management interface.


If no management interface is provided on a device, use the first port on the device to connect to the FTP or TFTP server. If the first port on a device is the combo port, use the electrical mode.

Compared with the rate for transferring files using the serial port, the file transfer using the Ethernet port is faster but requires the deployment of the FTP or TFTP server and an additional cable.

In the BootROM main menu, select 4 to access the Ethernet submenu.

If the BootROM is in V200R005 or earlier versions (excluding V200R005C02), restore the default BootROM password and then upgrade the BootROM.

The BootROM of the S5700LI cannot be updated to V200R001 or earlier versions using this submenu.

If you need to upgrade the BootROM using the Ethernet port, perform the following operations first:
  1. Prepare the BootROM program file to be updated, for example, the bootrom.bin file on the local device.
  2. Select 4. Modify ethernet interface boot parameter from the Ethernet submenu to modify network port parameters.
  3. After network port parameters are modified, select 3. Return to ethernet menu to return to the Ethernet submenu.
  4. Select 1. Update BootROM system to upgrade the BootROM system.

2. Download file to Flash through ethernet interface

Loads files to the flash memory using the Ethernet port.

3. Upload Configuration file to Ftp through ethernet interface

Uploads the configuration file to the FTP server for backup.

4. Modify ethernet interface boot parameter

Allows you to modify parameters on the Ethernet port. Properly set the parameters on the Ethernet port before uploading files using the Ethernet port.

The Ethernet port here refers to the management interface on the device. Configure the IP address of the Ethernet port, files to be uploaded, and FTP user name and password, to connect the device to the FTP or TFTP server.

5. Return to main menu
