PollCat NetLink II - User’s Guide
• When Items 1 or 2 are selected, NetLink will immediately begin
the upgrade procedure without displaying a "Sure" prompt.
• Access to NetLink II Command Mode will be blocked during the
ﬁrmware upgrade procedure.
5. Transfer the update ﬁle to the NetLink II unit.
a) If Items 1 or 2 have been selected, use your communication
program's upload function to transfer the update ﬁle to the
NetLink II unit via modem, Telnet or the Console Port. Select
Binary ﬁle format, and then specify the ﬁlename and directory
location for the ﬁrmware upgrade ﬁle.
b) If Item 3 has been selected, use your SFTP client to transfer the
update ﬁle to the NetLink II unit.
Note: The Upload function will time-out after one minute of
inactivity. If the function times out, reselect the desired upgrade
option (type 1, 2, or 3), and press [Enter] to continue, or type 4 and
press [Enter] to abort.
6. If the upload is successful, NetLink II will install the new ﬁrmware
and then reboot itself.
7. Incomplete Upload: If the upload is interrupted, times-out, or if
the ﬁle is corrupted during transfer, NetLink II will display an error
message, and then return to the Upload Firmware menu. To proceed,
re-enter the desired upgrade option (type 1, 2, or 3) and then press
[Enter]. To abort, type 3 and then press [Enter].
When ﬁrmware upgrades are available, WTI will provide the necessary ﬁles
via download or mail. At that time, an updated User's Guide or addendum
will also be available.
