Also what's the OS the tftp services running on?  Also make sure the firewall is not running on the computer...

try to load the fttp software to another machine and try and see if the same thing happens?

do you have a management IP configured on the switch?
Is IP enabled, interface enabled, etc?
Can you post the config?

Thanks

does you tftp computer have multipule nics?
if possible to disable the nics that are unused. Socket error to me suggests the tftp application on the pc is having the issue.

why are you trying to tftp to the local switch; do you have a local tftp server on the network?

What is it that you are trying to accomplish?

Hi ,Billy

Here that I am trying to accomplish?


I want copy filename with tftp on cisco switch or router

-I'm using Hyperterminal for the console
-I'm using SolarWinds TFTP server with ip address available is 192.168.1.111 (automatically delivered)

Switch#copy running-config tftp
Address or name of remote host []? 192.168.1.111
Destination filename [switch-confg]?
%Error opening tftp://192.168.1.111/switch-confg (Socket error)
Switch#

I have many difficults of this subject, in particular the necessary architecture  to resolve this problem all this is not clear for me.

I have materially routers  and  switches and no server TFTP.On the other hand I have software server software TFTP (SolarWinds, Ciscokits) installed on my PC.

That have to I make?

Thanks.
Francis.

If the tftp server is 192.168.1.111, then you will need a different Ip in the interface vlan:

interface Vlan1              
 ip address 192.168.1.112 255.255.255.0                                      
 no ip route-cache

assuming 192.168.1.112 is available, if not, choose an available IP.
