Upgrading ip|engine Firmware
Josh Frazier -
Determine Model / Current Firmware
To being, we must confirm the model of the Nano by consulting the device in Salsa. This is done under Supervision > ip|engine status.
In the consult window, refer to the Version line. This shows:
- The current firmware version.
- The model code (TAG) of the unit.
Based on the model code below, you can match to the model number chart shown here. See Step 2 above.
Upload Firmware Files to ip|engine
Enable the local FTP Daemon on the ip|engine.
SSH to the IP|Engine using username and password:
Enable FTP Daemon
Activate the ip|engine's ftp server with the following commands:
netconfig +ftp netconfig restart
Upload Firmware Files
Using an FTP client of your choosing (Filezilla recommended), upload the 3 firmware files needed to the ip|engine.
The pre-packaged files needed for the upgrade are located in Box within the following directory:
Use the file name that corresponds with the Model you located in the above section "Identifying Model". Extract the archive and upload the 3 files extracted to
Use the ip|engine as its own ftp server, so use the upgrade command:
upgrade -s 127.0.0.1 -d / -l ipanema -p ipanema -v
You should see output similar to the following:
[ipe]$ upgrade -s 127.0.0.1 -d / -l ipanema -p ipanema -v upgrade = running [ VERBOSE MODE ] Start download Downloading ipe_n5V2_v126.96.36.199.tgz package Download completed Decrypt tarballs Installing ipe_n5V2_v188.8.131.52.tgz package [ipe]$
The ip|engine will then automatically reboot and load the new version.
Once the reboot is completed, you can verify the new version by connecting back to the ip|engine and running the following command:
In which you will see the following output to confirm the upgrade:
