Where do I upload firmware to update the gateway's xbee firmware?

+1 vote
I have an off-site Connectport x4 gateway with an xbee s3b (900Mhz) radio that communicates with another s3b radio in the field. Ideally, I want to update both xbees' firmware. I guess I actually have 2 questions:

1) Where on the gateway do I upload firmware files for the xbee? I see the "Update Firmware" under Administration on the web UI, but I think that's for the gateway's only. Can I upload it under the Python files?

2) If I update the gateway's xbee's firmware, but not the xbee's that is out in the field, will the 2 radios still be able to communicate?

Thanks.

If the XBee module supports that function with the firmware installed, it will most likely be under the XBee section.

If you just updated it with the same type just a different version, IE from 8070 to 8071, and you are using the default settings (115.2kbps and API enabled) then the answer is yes.
