On two of our Lights Out controllers, which are running BusyBox 1.1.3, I am trying to upgrade the dropbear server since it has a very outdated and vulnerable version of it. I am looking at documentation, and comparing it to what I am seeing on command line interface, and I appear to be missing all of the needed commands from the device. I am not seeing any of the command for adding a package. Also, I know thee is a general command to add dropbear, but how would I upgrade the existing version? Can this be done via tftp?
