Install the Firmware

WARNING: Firmware version 2.2 can be applied to IP Downloaders running Firmware version 1.2 or 2.1 ONLY. The Downloader's current Firmware version can be found on the IP Downloader Home Page in the Information section.


WARNING: The version 2.2 upgrade will reset the IP Downloader configuration to the factory defaults.


To install the firmware on the IP Downloader, the Downloader must be connected to your network and powered up. If there is a PIPE in the Downloader, remove it.


The current firmware requires a two step upgrade process.  Step 1 installs the new firmware on the primary OS partition. Step 2 installs the new firmware on the backup OS partition.




This completes the firmware upgrade procedure. If you encounter problems during the process, please contact Technical Support.
