We use TFTP here. What we use it for is to copy images of our routers and hubs up and down. If you are trying to TFTP to someone like microsoft it wont work. you would need to use something like just regular ftp which is in windows. Just type ftp ftp.address.com and you are in.
Also to get the commands just type
FTP then hit enter
from here type Help and hit enter
This will give you all commands..
hope it helps

Ok....well here we go....Windows 2000 has TFTP built in...
But we use a program called SolarWinds 2000. I believe it is free also at www.solarwinds.com

All you do is this.....
1. Install the tftp program
2. Create a shared location to place the image files to
3. Launch the TFTP program
4. Log into a router or hub
This is the part that our network guy does so I am not really sure how it goes but
5. depending on manucacture,3com & cisco are different, you basically use the tftp option in there to copy up or bring down an image...

I learned something today......
this is what I just did...
1. Installed SolarWinds TFTP Server
2. Ran it and configured it
3. From a 2000 Pro box I did the following...
C:\>tftp

Transfers files to and from a remote computer running the TFTP service.

TFTP [-i] host [GET | PUT] source [destination]

  -i              Specifies binary image transfer mode (also called
                  octet). In binary image mode the file is moved
                  literally, byte by byte. Use this mode when
                  transferring binary files.
  host            Specifies the local or remote host.
  GET             Transfers the file destination on the remote host to
                  the file source on the local host.
  PUT             Transfers the file source on the local host to
                  the file destination on the remote host.
  source          Specifies the file to transfer.
  destination     Specifies where to transfer the file.


C:\>tftp dcp01275 put c:\1.txt dcp01275
Transfer successful: 25726 bytes in 1 second, 25726 bytes/s

C:\>

Now this line explained is...

TFTP (win2k tftp program)
dcp01275 (machine running tftp server)
put (place file)
c:\1.txt(txt file to use)
dcp01275 (machine running tftp server)

On the server end, in the directory I configured, is a file called dcp01275 which I can open up with notepad and it is the contents of the text file. I am not sure why it didnt call it 1.txt but I need to look into this abit more...

Since the tftp protocol does not support user authentication, the user must be logged on, and the files must be writable on the remote computer.

gotit...

you need to do this....

tftp server put file file name

tftp dcp01275 put c:\1.txt

If you want to give it an alternative name then you would do...
tftp dcp01275 put c:\1.txt 1.log

it does not ask you to overwrite it does it.

phew...
hope it helps...

LOL  [:->
Well actually...
I used a WinNt 4.0 Workstation to load the TFTP server software. Then used a Win2k Pro to tftp to the TFTP server. No servers envolved...but we do have 10 test servers. We never use our 70 production servers for stuff like this.....It is our job here to support a refinery and do many tasks....some i have played with today are diruse and forfiles commands in the NT 4.0 reskit. So this was a little sidetracked but neat to know.....
peace..

franka...i dont know what you mean???.. (ha yes it is our servers)

CSC net support....

what about the GET command to get a file from a place to put on the server?

tftp.exe external_server GET test.txt c:\test.txt

i know this much but the place whwree it is getting the file from does it have to be a ftp server? a shared drive? if so what if it is password protected.

TFTP is a protocol which requires both the client and server to both be running TFTP

FTP is also a client with the same requirement so you cant from my understanding tftp to a ftp server.

the problem with TFTP is you need to know the path and file name. there also is no security.

I did this from my " test " setup:

tftp dcp01275 put c:\master.db
sent the file to the tftp server

tftp dcp01275 get master.db
got master.db from tftp server and did not return a overwrite question.....

hope this helps
