Our firmware on our IOS Cisco router is outdated. We have been tasked to update it to the latest version. How can we do this? Where do we get the file from and what is a fttp server and how do we use it in conjunction with flashing the box?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I suppose you mean TFTP server which is used by Cisco to back up and restore stuff on their devices. You can also use it to roll out updates or changes without actually having to make the changes on the router first. Here is a walk through on how to set one and you download everything you need from www.Cisco.com
