Upgrading a PIX firewall via tftp

I am trying to upgrade my PIX firewall remotely via tftp. After I go through the tftp process the process times out after 15 seconds.

Has anyone run into this problem? What can I do to find out why the tftp transfer is timming out?

Thank you,

John...

Hi John,

I may have had a similar problem. The communication would start with the TFTP server and then hang (I would see the dots go across the screen then stop). I tried a different TFTP server and it worked fine for me. Its free, TFTPD32.

John,

This is the tftp tool that I used and it also worked fine in a similar situation....

Good luck,

At the risk of repeating what others are saying, I'd agree with going with the free Solarwinds. It seems to just work with Cisco, whereas others I've tried (are you listening, Pumpkin?) fails, more often than not.
