IIRC, tftp (like non-passive FTP) is one of those ancient, firewall-
unfriendly protocols. I think that the server actually initiates the
connection to the client for the actual transfer.
For a quick test, you'll need to adjust the firewall rules (or disable
it altogether) on the *client*. Note that this shouldn't be an issue
for your switches, as they won't be blocking the transfer traffic.
Well setting the firewall on the client did not seem to make a
difference, but I went over the the switch and that is working. Now
that I know all the permissions that need to be set...
