Transferring a file over a serial connection

After you connect to your target over a serial link, the Transfer image to target button becomes enabled () to indicate that you can transfer files from your host system to the target system.
To transfer a file:
  1. Using either the Terminal view or another method (outside the IDE), configure your target so that it's ready to receive an image. For details, see your hardware documentation.
  2. In the Terminal view, click the Transfer image to target button ().
  3. In the Data Transmission dialog box, below the File to transfer box, select the image file by doing one of the following actions:
    1. Click Workspace and in the File Selection dialog box, select a file and click OK.
    2. Click Filesystem and in the File Selection dialog box, select a file from your host filesystem and click Open.
  4. In the Select transfer protocol area, select Transfer a file using the QNX sendnto protocol or Transfer raw binary data over the connection.
    Note: The QNX sendnto protocol sends a sequence of records (including the start record, data records, and a go record). Each record has a sequence number and a checksum. Your target must be running an IPL (or other software) that understands this protocol. For more information, see the sendnto utility.
  5. Click Finish.
The QNX System Builder begins tranferring your file over the serial connection.
Note: You can click the Cancel button to stop the file transfer:
