I installed SolarWinds TFTP Server version 10.4.0.10 on a Windows XP Pro computer solely for downloading updated firmware to a couple HP switches. Got the TFTP server installed and configured, and started, but can't seem to connect to it. The HP switches can ping the computer running the server, but the tftp can not connect to the server. Nothing shows in the log window of the TFTP server.
OK, I just tried installing the TFTP server on my windows 2000 Server and it worked fine there. so the question is fairly moot, but if anyone has a good answer as to why it would not work on the XP Pro computer, I would love to hear it.
It could be a firewall issue. Verify that UDP port 69 is open.
