Tftp

Transfers files to and from a remote computer, typically a computer running UNIX, that is running the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) service or daemon. Used without parameters, tftp displays help.

Syntax

tftp [-i] [Host] [{get | put}] [Source] [Destination]

Parameters

-i   : Specifies binary image transfer mode (also called octet mode). In binary image mode, the file is transferred in one-byte units. Use this mode when transferring binary files. If -i is omitted, the file is transferred in ASCII mode. This is the default transfer mode. This mode converts the end-of-line (EOL) characters to an appropriate format for the specified computer. Use this mode when transferring text files. If a file transfer is successful, the data transfer rate is displayed.

Host   : Specifies the local or remote computer.

put   : Transfers the file Destination on the local computer to the file Source on the remote computer. Because the TFTP protocol does not support user authentication, the user must be logged onto the remote computer, and the files must be writable on the remote computer.

get   : Transfers the file Destination on the remote computer to the file Source on the local computer.

Source   : Specifies the file to transfer.

Destination   : Specifies where to transfer the file. If Destination is omitted, it is assumed to have the same name as Source.

/?   : Displays help at the command prompt.

Remarks

  • Using the get parameter

    Specify put if transferring file FileTwo on the local computer to file FileOne on remote computer. Specify get if transferring file FileTwo on the remote computer to file FileOne on the remote computer.

  • Windows XP or Windows 2000 does not provide a general purpose TFTP server. Windows 2000 provides a TFTP server service only to provide remote boot capabilities to Windows XP and Windows 2000 client computers.

  • This command is available only if the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol is installed as a component in the properties of a network adapter in Network Connections

Examples

To transfer the file Users.txt from the local computer to the file Users19.txt on a remote computer named vax1, type:

tftp vax1 put users.txt users19.txt
