How to upgrade...

Before you begin:

Download the upgrade file and save it on your hard disk.

The Camera server must be installed on an Ethernet the network using TCP/IP, see User’s manual or Quick Reference Guide. 

Disable any CRON Scripts or links to Web Pages that may reference the Camera Server during the flash procedure. 

Important Note: You must be in DOS and in the directory that contains the Upgrade File.
Example: C:\Axis\200p\1_42\

  1. Open a ftp connection to the unit you want to upgrade, from a command prompt. (I.e. you cannot use a ftp-program for this!) 
  2. Login as root. The default password for the root user is pass unless changed by the user. You must be logged in as the root user to flash the unit. 
  3. Change to binary transfer mode by typing bin and push the enter key. 
  4. Type hash and push the enter key. This will allow you to see the flash in progress. 
  5. Type the command put XXX.YYY flash and push the enter key. Change XXX.YYY to the name of the file you have downloaded and decompressed. Typically 200p_142.bin or axis200p.bin. 
  6. Wait for the flash load to finish, this may take 1-4 minutes. 

Your unit will automatically restart using the new firmware.
