One of the most TFTP Cisco Server i've been using is Cisco TFTP Server and can be downloaded at

Very useful to use, it include an IP address when you've been asked to enter the IP address to Copy from/To the router.

Good luck.

Cisco TFTP Server

The Microsoft Windows based TFTP server previously provided by Cisco Systems has been discontinued and is no longer supported by Cisco Systems. This software suffers from a security bug
described in ( As a historical note, the Cisco TFTP server was released to customers in 1995 and at a time when no other freely available TFTP servers existed.

Here is one with no security concerns

The best if you put the CF card into a CF reader and copy the images locally on PC!
