Is it possible to install firmware v. 2.50 without using QlarityFoundry? We have many QTERM-G55's in the field at version 2.40. I do not want the service technicians to use QlairtyFoundry to upgrade the firmware, as it is a powerful tool.

If your G55s have ethernet, then any TFTP client can be used to download firmware. TFTP is available on Windows 2000 and newer as well as most Linux distributions. Also there are several available clients that can be downloaded.



You can also use the QlarityDownloader tool to download firmware (serial or ethernet). This utility is available here http://www.qsicorp.com/engfiles/utilities.php



Finally, if you prefer, you can implement your own TFTP downloader by following the standards spelled out in the RFC (it is fairly straightforward). If you want to implement your own serial downloader we can point you to the protocol for that as well.

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm unfamiliar with the term RFC. What is it and where can I find it?

RFC stands for "Request for Comment" Many Internet standard protocols such as FTP, SMTP, POP and such are specified as RFCs that eventually become standards.

For instance the TFTP standard is RFC 783 (eventually a second revision, RFC 1350, superceeded RFC 783).

A simple google search for the appropriate RFC will find any RFC easily enough.

RFCs tend to be a bit scholarly and dry to read. You may also want to look for a general description of TFTP before diving into the RFC itself
