If you want to use TFTP:

save image tftp://1.2.3.4:/AP230-6.4r1a.img.S

You'll then need to reboot via the CLI to run it.

There's an annoying behaviour in Get Satisfaction where it's making the ftp in tftp a URL and I can't seem to do anything to escape it.

Thanks Nick! Will this save automatically to config?

Not for any other unsaved changes that you have made at the CLI but it will prompt when you attempt reboot via the CLI there if there are any.

You do not need to perform a config save after updating the firmware to activate it.
