Good TFTP Program? I've never used one but need to for a switch

  1. I need to update the firmware in my switch and must use TFTP to do it. Is there a simple way/program to accomplish this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Can we assume we are talking about Trivial File Transfer Protocol?

    Have you performed a search for "Free TFTP" or looked in TFTP servers using Google?

    Yes, that is what I mean. And I have googled it but I get so many I wondered if one sort of stood out as "TFTP for dummies". I only need to do this once with one switch, a simple firmware update, and sort of don't want to end up using a sledgehammer to pound in a finishing nail if you take my meaning.

    Thanks.

    I see your problem, and you are on the right path... but we have been too far away from it too long to be helpful... There are a lot of helpful people on those sites, though, if you contact them with very, very specific descriptions of what you are trying to do.

    FWIW, 3Com has a great little TFTP program. Works like a charm. Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.
