Numerous network devices, including routers, switches, hubs, X-terminals, printers, and terminal server devices, need a TFTP server to load initial configuration, IOS files, and transfer configuration file updates. SolarWinds TFTP Server was written to transmit and receive multiple configuration files at the same time using multiple connections.
Note: A TFTP Server is not an FTP server. TFTP and FTP are different protocols. You cannot connect to a TFTP server with an FTP client.
|Operating System||Install on a 32-bit or 64-bit edition of one of the following operating systems:
|.NET Framework||Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later.|
|Hard Drive space||10MB|
You can modify the installation location and other settings using the SolarWinds TFTP Server setup program.
Note: The Windows user account used to install SolarWinds TFTP Server must have administrator rights.
Start TFTP Server in the SolarWinds TFTP Server folder.
The TFTP server runs as a service, but some basic configuration may be necessary to ensure the TFTP server behaves in a way that works best within your environment. Complete the following procedure to setup your server.
Note: TFTP protocol has no innate security. There are no passwords or authentication. SolarWinds TFTP Server adds security by allowing you to limit the server's functionality and specify a range of IP addresses from which to accept requests.
