      Hello,

      I know that I'm not a Customer, and I'll ask you about free tool, but
      I suppose that you can help me with my dilemma.

      I have some questions regarding usage of SolarWinds Free TFTP Server.

      Well, on SolarWinds site (http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/)
      clearly stands that SolarWinds Free TFTP Server is free tool.

      However, when I install application and read license agreement (attached)
      I'm not sure that application is free - probably because license is outdated.

      Now I'll explain why I'm writing to you.

      I love features that your TFTP server has in comparison with other
      free TFTP servers (tftpd32, TFTPUtil ...).

      I want to install two instances of SolarWinds Free TFTP Server on two different servers
      in company that I work.

      However, company for which I'm working has strict policy that if software isn't absolutely free
      (or of course application license isn't purchased) it cannot be installed on company equipment.

      So my questions are:

      1. Is it SolarWinds Free TFTP Server free tool?
      2. Could I install SolarWinds Free TFTP Server on two company servers without
         any Solarwind legal prosecution.

      I'll expect your answer.
      Thanks in advance.

      Milan
