I have a PIX 525 running 6.3(1). There firewall is within my internal network and protects a server segment. I don't have a TFTP server on the "inside" side of the PIX. So the TFTP transfer has to go out the "oustide" interface to my workstation ( . This however is not working due to what I believe is a security limitation. Does anyone know how I can make this work?

inside interface:

outside interface: (aka interface 4)

TFP server:

FW# write net

Building configuration...

TFTP write 'FW' at on interface 4

Timed out attempting to connect

Nevermind, I did a little digging and found the answer via google.

To use TFTP going over a low secuirty (0) interface you need to define the server in your config.

In my example

conf t

tftp-server outside fw

then from enable prompt:

write net:
