Console Port Method (.exe file) System Image

The Console Port uses the above files to upgrade the AP11 to the latest firmware. A terminal program such as HyperTerminal in Windows that supports Zmodem file transfers is necessary. To update the AP11 going through the Console Port, you must do the following:

  1. Connect the RJ45 to RJ45 serial cable that is supplied to the console port on the AP128 and the other end to a serial port on a system. (A DB9 to RJ45 is supplied with the AP11).
  2. Set up the terminal program (HyperTerminal or any program that supports Zmodem file transfer) for 38400 and N, 8,1. X/on-X/off handshaking should also be selected.
  3. When you power on the AP11, you should see information scrolling on the terminal screen. "Type Boot to Bypass Main Image" will appear.
  4. Type the word "boot". Which will cause the AP11 to go into the boot screen.
  5. At the end of the process, the message "Waiting for Code Upload" will appear.
  6. Start the file transfer using Zmodem protocol and load the file AP11_Boot_x2.3.8.exe.
  7. Do not interrupt the upload or power off the AP11 during the process. This will cause the unit to be inoperable and necessitate it to be returned for repair.
  8. After the boot image upload is complete, continue with the second upload of the system image file AP11_Main_x2.3.8.exe
