    Request Help with TFTP Server

      Hi All,

      I am very new to the forum and will like help getting the TFTP Server working. I installed the Free version of Solarwinds TFTP Server version 10.4.0.10. The installation went well with no errors. I was able to open the software and start and stop the server fine when I first install it.

      But for some strange reason today I am not able to start the program. I open the software fine but when I click on start it goes right back to stop.

      I have reinstalled the software several times, reboot the system, nil fix. I am using Xp with Service Pk3.

      I check the TFTP service log. and found an error stating the following:

          I noticed the following lines:

          Many Windows Services write a message to the Application or System event logs when they start and stop.  It appears that your Event Logs could use a purge.  This article should be helpful if you aren't familiar with managing Windows Event Logs.

          Thanks!
