I'm trying to move some Cisco IOS images around my lab routers, using my ThinkPad R50 as the tftp server, and am getting a lot of "Permission denied" messages.
I had tremendous success copying FROM the routers' Flash into the R50; using XP's built-in tftp service. But trying to move images FROM the R50 TO the routers is so far not on.
I'm doing copy tftp flash from the IOS command line (which means I want to copy FROM a tftp server INTO the local router's Flash memory); and at first I got plain ol' timeouts. I tried it with the XP service first; turned off all firewalls (it's a lab network with no Internet) and had no luck. Then I installed 3Com's 3CDaemon TFTP server and made sure the appropriate directories were configured. Now I keep getting Permission denied error messages on the routers.
I don't know much about XP. Is this a file permission issue? Does my whole system forbid TFTP gets? Something else I need to check/configure?
It's XP Version 2002 SP 3 v.5755
