Transferring an image 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 image files from your host system to your target system.
To transfer an image file:
  1. Using either the Terminal view or another method (outside the IDE), configure your target so 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, below the File to transfer field, select the image file by doing one of the following:
    1. Click Workspace, select a file from the workspace in the file selector, then click OK.
    2. Click Filesystem, select a file from the host filesystem in the file selector, then click OK.
  4. In the Select transfer protocol area, click one of the two radio buttons: Transfer a file using the QNX sendnto protocol or Transfer raw binary data over the connection.
    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 details, 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.
