  • Hello. Not sure if this still needs answered, but I have just worked out how to allow this to work through Windows Firewall. It is on Windows 10, but should be similar to Windows 7. Open Windows Firewall. Go to Inbound Rules, select New Rule in the right side column.

    Choose the option for a Port rule.

    Choose UDP and specify port 69 which is used by TFTP.

    Allow the connection.

    Select the network types to allow this on. Can leave at default.

    Give the rule a name and optional description.
