Hey man, I'm having the same problem the switch is responding with this error:

Hey man, I'm having the same problem the switch is responding with this error: switch:
switch:
switch: copy xmodem:flash c2950-i6q412-mz.121-14.EA1a.bin
Begin the Xmodem or Xmodem-1K transfer now...
CCCCCBB0c2950-i6q412-mz.121-14.EA1a.bin: permission denied
switch:

??

I've done everything I know to do but Hyperterm is not sending the file or something. It always tells me that the remote device canceled the transfer? I'm using Vista.....I know this is stupid, but could that be the problem??? let me know what you think. I'd REAAAALLLLY appreciate it!

Thanks

Try this syntax instead:

copy xmodem: flash:c2950-i6q412-mz.121-14.EA1a.bin

Make sure you also run this command before the copy:

flash_init

CCBB0flashfs[0]: Cannot accept filenames longer than 45 characters.
flash:c29l: path name is too long

Now I'm getting this. I did the dir flash: command but got this output:

switch: dir flash:

Flash is ready to have a new IOS installed? any thoughts? Thanks for the speedy reply, I really do appreciate it.

Hmm.  Strange.

Reboot the switch and start over doing this:

flash_init
load_helper

copy xmodem: flash:c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-14.EA1a.bin

You can try renaming the file to something smaller and try again also.

Thank you soooooooo much for the help. I had a student today in class delete the flash on one of our 2950 switches. They all know the delete flash:vlan.dat command, but for some reason today everyone forgot it. I haven't done xmodem in forever so I am really really rusty on it. Again, thank you so much for the help.
