Can you use another ftp client or browser and browse to the ftp server ftp://10.1.1.1 and login?

Why not simply use TFTP?

Then issue a copy flash tftp command and follow the prompts?

Use the URL like this...

ftp://username:password@10.1.1.1/c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.bin

you must configure the default ftp username and password.

run config t , then run these lines. be sure to change the italic username and password with the correct user and password.

ip ftp password password
ip ftp username username

then you should be able to run copy flash

@dmwynne, you are right. I can not login when i browse ftp://10.1.1.1 with Google browser, which means the password and username are incorrect. But I reset the username and password in the server, why is the problem still there ? I tried several different username, but it still does work. The default username is admin ? Thank you.

I did it exactly based on your link. But it still cannot work. Do you think it is Macfee problem, which is installed in my PC? But ping is not problem. The port 21 is also open. This FileZilla is second ftp server software that I am trying. The previous one has the same issue with this.

I would disable McAfee temporarily while you try this.

To verify the port is open from another machine telnet 10.1.1.1 21 or use putty, if it lets you connect you know it open if not it could be your firewall.

When you tried with the browser did you get the username / password prompt?

Thank all of you. All that you said are right. The PC is in the domain system. After giving authentication, It started to work out. Thank you!
