How can I send a new application into a "factory fresh" ME "without" JTAG ?

Please write step by step.

Thanks,
Frank

Frank,

The information is buried in the manual somewhere. You log onto a page whose address is something like:

ip-address/admin/administration.htm

Once there you can select an option to update the application.

You have to make sure the file format is OK (which the GNU tools do).

I think you also have to make sure your application works enough to update itself - haven't yet found a way to force an application update.

The address ip-address/admin/administration.htm work on my system.

I see the following contents:

Administration
File Management
Update Firmware
Factory Default Settings
Reboot

Now I would like to download the example (naftpapp => image.bin) into the File Management.
But it doesn't start with the file.

If you select "Update firmware", it prompts you for a file name. Then you hit "update".

Does it give you an error message which implies that it doesn't like the image.bin file?

Now it works. I haven't select "Update firmware".
I have only used "File Management".

Thanks for your help,

I have a question - How the heck do you know what the IP address is on a blank ME?

Thanks,

Would not the term "blank ME" indicate that there was no IP address?

That's what I was thinking, so how do I program a new ME without the JTAG? There is no IP address for FTPing, there is no JTAG to program it, I am puzzled.

Erik,

You want to make use of the Connect Programmer.

Please send an e-mail request to support.wizards@digi.com, in order to confirm your address. I will respon with a copy of the tool.

Well, Cameron seems to be asleep (two emails and 2 voicemails with no response). I probably have the aforementioned utility, I just don't know the name. Anyone know what it is called so I can search for it?

Thanks,

Erik,

You can use dgdiscvr.exe to find any MEs on the network - it then gives you a route into configuring the IP address.
Once you've done that, go to the admin page and you can download a new image.

(Incidentally, haven't sorted out what to do if your image doesn't support further updates....)
