Hello there and thanks for the help in advance.

I'm trying to send my PIX501 config via TFTP so I can upload it to my new PIX506.  I have been trying to use the tftp-server 192.168.1.19 pix.txt to try and send it to my computer.  I have downloaded Solarwinds' TFTP server and have not had any success.  I'm connected to the PIX via console but also have the ability to telnet in via IP.  I'm sure that I'm bloching the commands and could use some guidance with this. Thanks again for your help and time.

Joe

Can you ping 192.168.1.19 from the PIX?
Do you have any software firewall on the TFTP server PC?
Tried this:

pix#write net 192.168.1.19:pixconfig.txt

Make sure you set the TFTP server to "take all files"

I have doublechecked the TFTP server to take all files.  Did get further though.  Here is the read out.

PIX(config)# write net 192.168.1.19:pixconfig.txt
Building configuration...
TFTP write 'd:/pixconfig.txt' at 192.168.1.19 on interface 1
TFTP Server Error: Invalid access to d:/pixconfig.txt
[FAILED]

Is your D: drive a network share mapped to a drive letter?
Try changing the tftp root directory to a different local directory on your tftp system, then check the config of the TFTP server and tell it where the new root directory is.
I use something easy like C:\tftproot\

I tried to use a different program and now recieved this errror.

PIX(config)# write net 192.168.1.19:config.txt
Building configuration...
TFTP write 'd:/config.txt' at 192.168.1.19 on interface 1
Can not open file
[FAILED]

Is it trying to pull the flash or replace it with a file by that name?  This is confusing me abit.

Do you have anything like this in your PIX config:

tftp-server <ip address> \D:/

It is trying to write a text file called D:/config.txt to the TFTP's root directory.
Since your TFTP server is not using D:/ as the tftp root directory, it is failing.
We need to figure out where that "D:/" is coming from

Ok I went in tftp-server and made a modification.  This is the command I used:

tftp-server 192.168.1.19 tftp-server

Then I tried it again

PIX(config)# write net 192.168.1.19:config
Building configuration...
TFTP write 'tftp-server/config' at 192.168.1.19 on interface 1
TFTP Error: File Open Error 3
[FAILED]

This time though it started popping up on my SolarWinds TFTP Server screen though.
It reads:  TFTP Error from 192.168.1.1 sending tftp-server/config : File Open Error 3
