Update firmware through Ethernet
Last updated July 26th, 2023
With Knox E-FOTA On-Premises, you can also update the OS version of a device through a USB Ethernet connection. To do so, ensure you have the following:
- A network connection
- A LAN cable
- A USB-C Ethernet adapte
First, you need to set up your campaign to support the Ethernet connection:
Sign in to the Knox E-FOTA On-Premises admin portal. Ensure you’re in the correct workspace by verifying the workspace name in the upper-right corner of the console.
In the left sidebar, click Campaigns and create a new campaign or modify an existing one.
On the Create campaign or Modify campaign screen, in the POLICY tab and under Download network, select Any (Wi-Fi or Mobile).
If creating a new campaign, click CREATE, or if you’re modifying an existing one, click UPDATE.
After the device receives the new campaign details, do as follows:
- Connect the LAN cable to the Wi-Fi access point and the USB-C Ethernet adapter.
- Plug the USB-C Ethernet adapter in to the device.
A notification appears on the device confirming the Ethernet connection, and it can now download and install the OS update according to the campaign policy.
