BSC 462 Firmware will not update

Post by MadHatchetBrewing » Wed Jul 25, 2018 5:21 pm

I have tried multiple attempts with multile browsers. I have looked at other similar disscusions and I have had no success. My BCS 462 will not update it's firmware past 4.0.1. From what I am gathering from the other forums, this is the reason the utility will not recognize my BCS IP address, which is my main reason for this post. I can not back-up or restore anything.

Here's a few questions to get us started:
What TFTP program are you using?
Is the file you are trying to upload correctly named bcs460.bin?
Where is the file located in reference to the TFTP file folder?
What is the IP numbering of the BCS vs the station running TFTP?
Have you checked if your computer firewall is blocking the TFTP port?

I was able to final get the Firware updated to 4.1.2, however the BCS Utility still will not recognize my BCS IP Address when I enter it.

Are you inlcuding the http:// in front of the IP address? It needs to be in that format - e.g. http://192.168.1.100

if your Ip is
http://192.168.1.218

try http://192.168.1.218/

The Trailing "/" has been an issue for me for some odd reason. Try with and without. You can also enter the IP in The Recipe, Migrator or PID Tuner (Top of the Utilities). I have had this issue but have always been able to finally get it to work. Chrome is best.

Have you cleared your browser history? Also try to log in to one of the other tabs (restore/ recipe)
