Cannot Upgrade Cisco SFE2000P POE Switch

I am trying to upgrade the firmware on a Cisco SFE2000P 24 port switch. The only option for upgrade is TFTP. I downloaded a copy of Solarwinds Free TFTP server. Installed it on one of my servers without a problem. I uploaded the firmware file into the TFTP directory. When I attempt to GET the firmware from the TFTP server, I get the following messages.

FROM SWITCH: TFTP Server Unreachable

"binary, GET, Interrupted by client, received error packet with code: 0 and message: Illegal Connection"

Any ideas?

May I suggest you use TFTPd32 instead of Solarwinds?

There are file-size issues when using 32-bit TFTP servers, and Solarwinds' offering appears to be the worst at displaying this.
