TftpServer for Mac3.6.1

22 May 2018

Configure Mac OS X TFTP server.

What is TftpServer for Mac

TftpServer is a utility which helps you to utilize and configure the TFTP server shipped with the standard Mac OSX distribution.

Using this application you can start/stop the TFTP service on your Mac and change its working path, that's where the files are sent to and received from by any TFTP client (e.g. a Cisco router or switch). In addition, other features are available to help you to seamlessly send and receive files from any TFTP enabled device to a Mac acting as TFTP server. This is useful if you have a lot of network devices and want to store in a safe place all their configuration files and operating system binary images. These files can be reused later (or modified using a text editor on your Mac) to easily configure from scratch other similar devices or update their system image files.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

Ho aggiornato il mio Mac con Catalina e tftp non funziona più. Sarebbe possibile avere una versione 64 perché con Catalina tutte le app a 32 non funzionano

Works great but I am unable to find a way to enable logging. This is very useful to see if your TFTP transfers are working as expected. I would expect to see file transfers showing up in the Log Viewer tab but I only see start and stop activities. Thoughts?

I'm having the same issue that lukewarms is... Working Path Permissions - OK, Parent folders permissions - OK... but when I click Start TFTP, the status doesn't change. The log file says:

[date] [time] [computer-name.local] TftpServer[9356]: load TFTPServer ...

I can't get the Server Status to change from "Stopped."

Thanks in advance for your help.

(pardon the duplication. I meant to leave this as a comment, not a review)

Highly recommended tool! Without any knowledge about TFTP was the setup of TFTP server a question of 2 minutes! With this tool I could load firmware image to FortiGate 60 and save my firewall, which was not working (unfinished firmware upgrade through web interface). Thank you to the developer for this usefull tool!

WARNING! TftpServer 3.2.1 has a serious flaw. If you are trying to use it to upload a Cisco IOS to a Cisco router or switch then DO NOT use this software... it will appear to work and then at the very end of the transfer the Cisco device will report "Timeout. Transfer Cancelled" , then you'll be stuck with no IOS in your device. Although I have not tested the theory I believe this may be caused by the software having a size limit on the file size it will transfer? For reference I have been moving IOS files of about 30MB and 50MB. Both transfers failed. Otherwise this software seemed to work flawlessly with moving small size files up/down. I moved Cisco config files up and back with no issues.

This is a great little utility. Anyone who uses their Mac for Cisco configuration knows how nice this utility made your life with panther. Now It's tiger compatible. A classic example of making the tools already available in Mac OS X more accessible for users. Good work.

Great application. Super simple yet very functional. Just one thing, is there a way that the TFTP server can create a file if it doesn't exists?
