I have never worked with Foundry switches and was wondering is there any way to copy a software image to the switch via serial. i.e......

There is no ehternet available and I have a laptop connected vie console cable.... Is there a way I can get it from my laptop  to the switch?? I know cisco has xmodem but I dont see this on the foundry?

Foundry devices have a CLI you can use just like cisco to upload/download flash from TFTP servers. Doing it directly over the serial cable with no ethernet, maybe someone can give info on this as I have no clue how you'd do it. The serial int is generally so you can get ethernet configured and go from there...

There is a way of sending files using Windows Hyperlink but i doubt that the switch will suppot it.
The easiest way as the guy here said before is to install a tftp server on the computer that is connected to the serial and connect it with ethernet too, and then download the image.
