    Updating Option Globesurfer III Using Telnet Command Line Interface (CLI)

    Using your favorite telnet program login to the Option globesurfer 3's command line interface. For windows XP users you can use the command prompt.

    Run -> Start -> type 'cmd' (a black command window appears)

    - the user id and password are both 'admin' by default unless you have previously changed the pwd
    - if you login successfully you should get a 'Globesurfer >' prompt
    In general as with any command line interface to any device you can type 'help [command]' to learn more about a specific command. If you don't know the commands just type 'help' and it will give you an error together with all the help options available.

    If you type this it tells you help must have at least one command then gives you the following commands

    Digging deeper you can find exactly what firmware_update command does thus:

    GlobeSurfer> help firmware_update

    Command Category firmware_update - Firmware update commands
    start Remotely upgrade GlobeSurfer
    cancel Kill running remote upgrade
    exit Exit sub menu
    help Show help for commands within this menu

    Returned 0
    To get more help with the "firmware_update" command enter the command:

    Notice that this changes the prompt now to show the current command being run. Then type 'help start' from within the command

    firmware_update> help start
    start Remotely upgrade GlobeSurfer

    Usage: start -u <update_url> [-c] [-i]
    -c: Check only - don't really flash
    -i: Ignore version number when deciding whether to burn the image

    Returned 0
    So in summary this should help you figure out any command line command available for the gs3 and indeed for any device that has a CLI.

    To answer your questions specifically you need to do:

    GlobeSurfer> firmware_update start -u <update_url> -i
    The <update_url> unfortunately is password protected at the Option website
