    Can you ping that IP address from your router?
    Is the T.F.T.P. program launched on the computer?

    if I say something that can be taken one of two ways and one of them offends, I usually mean the other one :-)

    I tried turning off my firewalls but that was not the problem and yes i can ping the T.F.T.P server.

    Read the log on the T-FTP server.

    Which TFTPserver are you using? Solar Winds doesn't serve files by default, but will let you upload files all day. Is your TFTPserver set to allow downloads?

    I had that same issue with SolarWinds. I then used TFTP32 and it worked fine.
