First, you need to make sure there is IP connectivity.

Second, how did you enable the server? did you use the file parameter?

You cannot enable TFTP on "Flash".

You need to enable it for a certain file. Like so:

"ip tftp-server flash:filename.bin"

hello slide,

yes there is an IP connectivity between the devices, they can ping each other,

i have enabled the tftp server using the same command as given above, and i can copy from the tftp server to my devices, but i cannot copy to the tftp server from my devices.
