ASA will not use TFTP

My ASA5505 will not copy files from or to my TFTP server.  I can ping the ASA from the TFTP server and vice versa.  It times out when trying to write the file or access the device.  thanks.

Is the tftp server on your inside or the outside leg?

It is on the inside.  I have connected a cable between that interface and my laptop.  I can ping both directions.  I have the solar winds tftp server running and the folder on the hard drive waiting.  

I have defined the tftp server and interface using the tftp-server command but it still doesn't work.

Did you use 'copy flash tftp' command and it isn't working?

Did you trid the ASDM?
terry_coleAuthor Commented:
I have tried several variations of the copy command.  Copy run tftp, copy running-config tftp, copy tftp startup-config, etc..  I have also tried using the ASDM.  It neither saves nor restores.  

I resorted to defaultiing to factory settings and pasting the config into a hyper terminal window.

It still doesn't work with tftp but I managed to get the config changed.

Thank you,
