Any cisco router or L3 switch can be used as TFTP server for the purpose.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Sorry my voice skills are a bit rusty

The reason we want to set it this way is whenever a new phone is configured, it takes more than 30-45 mins before it downloads all the required files. We thought placing these files locally will help speed up this process

Will it work if i just use a normal tftp server and place the phone loads in the default directory

If i still place the files on the central CM site and forward my requests to the local tftp server, how will it redirect to the Central CM site

Yes placing the files locally will speed up things. Any TFTP server can do the job. You have to study the boot process to note and copy the necessary files. Once the phone is initialized you can place it on the production network to register.

You cannot have the central CM site to forward to another TFTP server.
