Ethernet Submenu

Ethernet Submenu

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


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

Transferring files using an Ethernet interface is faster than using the serial port, but requires the deployment of an FTP, TFTP or SFTP server and an additional cable.

In the BootLoad main menu, select 3 to access the Ethernet submenu.
