Cannot Copy Cisco Router Config via TFTP to TFTP Server on Windows 7 Workstation

I feel like I am doing everything correctly but all my tftp transfer attempts timeout. I have tried using TFTPD32 and TFTPD64 as well as Solarwinds TFTP.

Wireshark even shows a TFTP write request from the router's IP address to the Windows 7 machine. I can't help but feel like the issue is caused by some setting in Windows 7 not being correct. I have also completely disabled the Windows Firewall service.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check Windows write permissions for TFTP root directory? Check also in TFTP server configuration that you allow read and write to TFTP.

Thanks, this seems to have done the trick. Now I am trying to do the same thing from a Windows 2008 R2 server instead and running into a different issue. I created another question for that issue if you have any ideas:
