TFTP is short for Trivial File Transfer Protocol and is the most common protocol used to boot the OS of workstations and embedded devices over IP networks.

Caveats

  • Many tftp client and server implementations are plagued with bugs. If you're experience problems with a IP22 or RM 200, check try the hints given on the ARC page.
  • TFTP is considered an insecure protocol and thus generally - like most UDP-based protocols - filtered at firewalls.
