How can I get TFTD to write files as well?

Hi there,

it may be a stupid question, but I can't get it even after playing hours with it.
I have a Windows 2003 Server with SP1 and a running RIS with the integrated TFTPD Service from Windows. Now I want to write files on the server through this TFTP (should be not that complicated, but it is.)
The GET command succeeds, I downloaded some test files
The PUT command fails with "Access violation" Error = 2
The TFTPD Service is running under SYSTEM Account and have full access on the root folder and al it's subfolders.
Can anyone figure out what I'm doing wrong? Or is it a limitation of the TFTPD service to GET files only?

Thanks Mike

Check for the following registry keys in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TFTPd\Parameters:

Masters defines the IP addresses that are able to write to the server, eg. "192.168.1.*" to allow addresses starting with 192.168.1
Writable defines the file types/names you are allowed to transfer, eg. "*" to allow all files.

Yes man, that's it
Thank's a lot! That's the way M$ makes configuring things very easy :-)

Have a nice day!
