TFTP client in Vista

At a presentation last week a gentleman asked me if Vista includes a tftp client.  Today I was poking around in the Vista add/remove features and there it is!  Below is the command line output of tftp /?.

  • Same is in XP

  • Yes, good point.  The tftp command is also present in XP.  I should have pointed out that in Vista, both tftp and the telnet command are not installed by default, you have to add them.  As a user the easiest way is via the Programs and Features applet in Control Panel using the "Turn Windows Features On or Off" link on the left pane.

  • Thanks for pointing that out, so I don't need to start my Linux system anymore for tftp sessions.

  • OK I have it turned on, now how do I use it to transfer files to a website?  I'm totally new to this.

  • For transferring to/from a web server you probably want to use "ftp" rather than "tftp".  There is more detail on tftp here:

  • Thanks for the TFTP info in vista. Dave

  • Thanks for this, I was looking to flash a router, and realized I couldn't find tftp in Vista.

  • Thanks for this info Mate, I really was experiencing problems flashing my router b4 enabling this. But now its smooth

  • I found this file that has two designations-one a simple file transfer app and the other is Terrorist Finance Transfer Protocol.  I am shocked as I am an American with no ties at all to terrorists or crime or very much money for that matter.  I've been harrassed and stalked for 2 years and now I know why but the reason is inexplicable.  I haven't done anything and I don't know who to contact to find out what the problem is and get myself off the list of this "protocol".  I'm scared to death! My email is tybroussard@gmail.com.  Please email me if you have info on this situation. I haven't done anything wrong!

  • thanks a lot for this info ! i was trying to find a way to use this

  • Hi Ty

    A bit of advice is to never use your real name, or leave you email and certainly not your phone number on a message board like this or you will be harrased
