  • Unable to copy IOS image in 2950 Cisco Catalyst switch

    Starting from the beginning, i used the "erase startup-config” command on my switch and then later on reloaded my switch and when it prompted me i saved the changes that i made.. Now what has happened is that the IOS that was originally installed in my switch has been corrupted..So when ever i try to console into my switch, instead of taking me to the user mode i am getting a prompt that looked like this
    Switch:

    Later on i found out (thanks to Cisco's website) that it is because my switch's IOS is either corrupted or missing and i will have to download a new IOS using XMODEM.. now whenever i try to copy this IOS image file, using XMODEM, that i have stored on my PC I get an error message saying that
    THE REMOTE OPERATOR IS NOT RESPONDING..
    even though now i have tried it for a number of times still i am getting this error message does any one of you have any recommendation of how to avoid receiving this message or is there anyway in which i can copy the IOS file to my switch's flash.. Please do let me know..

    Hmmm erasing the config will put your hostname to it's defaults either what switch is...
