Here is my problem  I can console into my switch but once into the switch cannot ping back through the console port.  
On the switch my ip address is 192.168.1.7
the gateway is set up as 192.168.1.72

This is  my ip address.  I want to upgrade the switch to the newest flash.  

Here is my config

>I can console into my switch but once into the switch cannot ping back through the console port.

The console port is a serial port that doesn't process IP traffic. It's strictly for local management.

If you're trying to copy a file to flash from a TFTP server, connect the server to any of the ports, assign an IP address (192.168.1.x/24) to the server and make sure you can ping the server from the switch.

Depends on what you're connecting to what:

PC-Switch = Straight through
Switch-Switch = crossover
PC-Console= rollover

thanks...I did not use a cross over cable.  It worked great.  I thank you for also giving me some much needed advice I now know that console does not pass ip traffic.  
I was able to upgrade my switch with your assisitance.
