tftp timeout

    I'm getting a tftp timeout when uploading a .bin for an
    update to the operating system. The firewall is turned
    off and xinetd is set to launch tftp as user nobody.
    ownership of the tftp directory is set for nobody.

    Any ideas?

    It seems tftp must be ran as root via xinetd.
    Beyond that, I can transfer data from switch to
    tftp server but not tftp server to switch.

    copy tftp flash
    Address or name of remote host [<ip removed>]?
    Source filename [c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-46.SE]? c3750-ipbasek9-mz.
    122-46.SE.bin
    Destination filename [c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-46.SE.bin]?
    Accessing tftp://<ip removed>/c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-46.SE.bin...
    %Error opening tftp://<ip removed>c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-46.SE.bin

    Test your server with a TFTP client on a PC. Check the logs on the server.
    Is the source file readable by the TFTP server?

  4. Make sure the file exists and has permission to be written on.

    Most tftpds refuse to create files, and tftp has no other error message
    than timeout....
