Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

  • The FTP configuration is used when the automatic upgrade and online upgrade modes are FTP. In the automatic upgrade or online upgrade, the AC sends basic FTP information to the AP, and the AP requests the FTP server for upgrade based on FTP information.
  • After running the ap update ftp-server command, you can perform the following operations:
    1. Run the ap update mode command to set the upgrade mode to ftp-mode.
    2. Run the ap update multi-load command to upgrade APs in batches.


  • It is recommended that you use an external FTP server to upgrade APs. If the AC functions as the FTP server, a maximum of five APs can be upgraded simultaneously. When the AC functions as an FTP server, the number of VTY users is the reduced number of APs that can be upgraded simultaneously.

  • The FTP server user name cannot contain the double quotation marks ("). Ensure that the FTP server user name and unencrypted password configured on the AC do not contain the preceding characters. Otherwise, FTP upgrade fails.


# Configure the FTP server IP address, FTP server user name and password.
