How to FTP a file to an S8XX0 and move it to tftpboot by phoneguy55
Posted: 2 Jul 09

How to FTP a file to a S8xx0.  This is necessary when selecting download file from the web interface fails.

log in via web interface
select sever access
enable FTP server (21) under service state

In Windows:
start, run, cmd
at a dos prompt
goto where your firmware is stored.  For me that was D:\Data\Avaya\firmware
you should see your firmware file.  For me that was 00.1.731.2-15920.tar.gz

ftp 10.X.X.X
where 10.X.X.X is the IP address of the server that you want to connect to
login:  anonymous
just hit enter for the password.
ftP> cd /
ftp> cd /pub
ftp> ls
you should see an avaya folder.  If so, you are now in /var/home/ftp/pub directory
ftp> binary
ftp> put filename.tar.gz
wait for file to be moved
ftp> ls -ltr
you should see the file you just ftp'ed
ftp> bye

Telnet or SSH to the S8XX0
login and password
terminal type, just hit enter
cd /var/home/ftp/pub
ls -ltr
you should see you file you just ftp'ed


Moving a file to tftpboot:

Log into the S8300 via the web interface.
Select Download files.
Select Files(s) to download form the machine I'm using to connect to the server.
Browse to select up to 4 files on your laptop.
Do NOT check Install this file on the the local server.
Click download.
These files are now on the S8300 in the /var/home/ftp/pub directory.
You now want to move these files to the tftpboot directory.

Telnet or SSH to the IP address of the S8300
run the command:  cd /var/home/ftp/pub
run the command:  ls
verify that the files are there.
run the command:  mv /var/home/ftp/pub/filename.ext /tftpboot
where filename.ext is the file name that you want to move.
If the file exists you will be prompted to over write it.  Enter Y.
run the command:  cd /tftpboot
run the command: ls
verify your file is there or you can do this from the web interface by clicking tftpboot directory
