RE: ftp flash still flaky
Maybe this is caused by an out of memory condition? In Axis products
we shut down most of the programs (by a runlevel change) before
starting upgrading. I am not sure how this is done in the latest
developer board firmware.

Subject: ftp flash still flaky
does anyone know the "correct" way to use ftp flash? i am trying to
upgrade the kernel image on some boxes, and it doesnt always work.
here's what happens:
ftp>put fimage flash
local: fimage remote: flash
227 Entering Passive Mode (135,10,42,63,12,0)
150-Going to single user mode.
150 Opening data connection.
226-Transfer complete. Checksum and HWID verified.
At this point,
-sometimes the flashing completes successfully
-sometimes i get the message
"netout: connection reset by peer"
-sometimes nothing happens for a long time, after which i kill the ftp and
reboot the box.
everytime that the flashing fails, if i reboot the box and try again, it
what could i be doing wrong, and how can i get it to work the first time
