TFTP Issue

I don't know a better place to ask this question so even a redirection could get some points.

I have a Lantronix Xport device that works perfectly in the system in which it is installed. I can tftp this device from 3 other computers on the network but not my own. I can talk to the device as a com port but when I try to upload an http doc I get the following error message:

tftp: tftp/udp: unknown service

MightworkSoft MSDN website give the following explanation:
"...To transfer files to or from a remote computer using the TCP/IP Tftp command, the remote computer must have Ftp server running. It does not..."

However, as I said, three other computers on the same network have no trouble at all. I can't see any differences between the setups to account for this. Any ideas?

Hi 1stITMAN

Actually, I fixed the problem myself by uninstalling the simple TCP/IP services and reinstalling the TCP/IP protocol.

After that, no problem at all.

Thanks for your input

I had the same problem, I checked what was happening with FileMon and somehow the path had been screwed up, it was looking for the services file in <current_directory>\%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\services, instead of %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\services. I worked around it by creating %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc in the directory I was trying to run it in. I will try reinstalling TCP and see if that fixes my problem as well.
