    Verify you firewall is not blocking the TFTP connection.

    One thing I noticed when I was playing around and upgrading / backing up ios is that some tftp servers require you to run them as an administrator to work properly. For example, in Windows 7 64 ultimate, I could download from my tftp all day long, but I couldn't back up files to it unless I ran the program as an administrator. This took me a little bit to figure out. That may not be your issue, but thought I'd pass it along just in case. For reference, I was using TFTPD64 server at the time.

    Also, make sure your ios is in the root directory of your server. Otherwise it won't be able to find it. Other than that, maybe some other folks here will have some thoughts.

    What's the mask you're using on the pc? If that matches the router, I'd try using another tftp server (such at tftpd) and seeing if that works. I've never messed with solarwinds, but if you have your router / pc configured correctly, there's not much that can go wrong. I'd also double check that all firewalls are off, including windows firewall if you're running vista/7. Might post your running config here for people to look at.

    Also, maybe a dumb question, but you do have enough space for the ios you're wanting to download, right? I believe you can bypass the deletion of the current ios and try to download a file, at which point it will simply time out when it runs out of room. I believe that happened to me at one point when I was having so much fun recovering my ios and trying to troubleshoot some bad ram.

    Anyway, might copy and paste the running config and the exact error you're getting. Someone will have an answer, I'm sure.

    How are you connected to the Router? Are you going via a switch? If so, cut out the switch and connect to the router directly from the laptop. Obvious I know but make sure you use a cross over cable and not a straight through.

    Open a command prompt on your PC and run a "netstat -ano" Verify that nothing is using UDP 69. If it is, find the PID in the column to the right and open your task manager to find what it is and kill it.

    I had this problem a few times when trying to throw a quick config on a sup engine. Turns out I had solarwinds tftp running while I was trying to use tftpd32.

    Stupid question, but do you have your TFTP client open while attempting this copy?

    Open the client and run that command again to see if it is actually opening the port on your PC.

    Should appear as 0.0.0.0:69 if it is listening and not being used...

    And if you can't find it, it sounds like your TFTP server is malfunctioning. Maybe the Solarwinds TFTP Server service stopped or something.

    Download TFTPD32 : an opensource IPv6 ready TFTP server/service for windows : TFTP server and try again.

    Try copying something different from your router to your PC. Try 'copy start tftp' and follow the prompts.

    Does your IOS image have .bin at the end?

    Do you have any type of security software on your PC that could possibly be blocking port 69?

    As mentioned before you will probably want to append the .bin when typing in the file name. The IOS file should have a .bin at the end of the file. (You might have to turn on file extension to see it)
