Copy flash TFTP Error

I have a 3550 switch that I am trying to upgrade the IOS on.

I am trying to copy to a TFTP server.

I am receiving a socket error.

I saw that this can be fixed with

Switch#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

Switch(config)#no service config

Switch(config)#exit

Switch#

00:13:47: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console

Switch#reload

I have done this 3 times to no avail.

My TFTPd32 server on my pc is working fine.

Here is the error

Switch#sh flas

Copy flash TFTP Error

Not sure why you see socket error

TFTPd32 has a setting for security. If it is not set to 'none' then the destination file must exist

So c3550-ipbasek9-mz.122-25.SEB4.bin must exist on server before you copy as an empty file.

Firewall on PC allows udp port 69?

Cheers,

Michel
