I read the July posts on this topic - particularly the message from Even Glemmestad:

I downloaded the zip-format firmware upgrade file.
I copied it to /tftpboot on the PE2650 and un-zipped it.
I enabled in.tftpd and verified that I could tftp-get the files
from another system.
I opened a browser window to the ERA, clicked Update, entered
the IP address of the PE2650 and clicked Begin Update - and got
the following error:
TFTP transmission error (Bad IP address, incorrect path,
or file size too small or too large).
Did I miss something? Has anyone gotten this to work?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
