The Cisco IOS has its own set of commands to operate and manage files like Windows or Linux Operating systems. This is similar to DOS/Windows commands. These files are actually your router operating system, configuring files or other IOS file. So, knowledge of these commands is actually important.

It is the operating system utilized in many Cisco enterprises. Most of the routers have USB slots, which can be used for enhancing the equipment without using TFTP connection. With FAT file system you are suggested to format the USB flash drive you are going to use plus it should have enough space for hosting the IOS file as well as the backup you are going to make.

Steps for upgrading the Cisco router:

a. From your Cisco account download the latest IOS image created for your equipment.

b. On your computer system, insert the USB drive and copy the file to root the USB drive.

e. For making a backup copy of your present IOS type ‘copy Flash usbflash1: Name-of-your-backup-IOS’.

f. For upgrading to the latest and last IOS type ‘copy usbflash1:name-of-the-new-IOS flash’.
