Hi, 

 

Apologies for a non-rebooting question - I hope you will help me with your vast experience in TFTP32:

 

I recently bought TP-link wireless N nano router while visiting China. Back home I would like to update the firmware to get an English interface rather than the installed Chinese one. According to advice from TP-link I need to use TFTP32 to upload the new firmware to the router (http://www.tp-link.c...icle/?faqid=136). However, I cannot connect to TFTP32 using FTP and my firmware update therefor fails.

 

What do I need to do to get the TFTP server up and running? I want to run it from a Win7 64 bit laptop. I have enabled ‘TFTP Server’ in global settings, and in TFTP settings I have given a base directory, selected ‘Standard’ TFTP Security, and selected ‘Open negotiation’. In the Windows Firewall, I allow everything on both UDP and TCP in relation to TFTP32.

When I try to connect (using WinSCP (in FTP mode, no encryption) it asks me for a user name and password. I do not know what these should be so I give none and get a “Connection failed - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.“

Thanks for any help!

Why dont you just use the web GUI to upload the Firmware?

(see section 1 of the link you posted)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have your hart set on using tftpd32

Here is a 64 bit version available

Use currPorts to see if you have the port (69)listening

Switch off your windows firewall

And make sure you have a static IP

JFYI, section 2. states:

 

 

 

2. By using TFTP server
Some versions of router need to use TFTP server for upgrade, please follow the below steps:

 

@wocket

Try again with "Security settings" set to "Standard".

Make sure that the TFTP root directory is set correctly and the file you need is in it.

Or try with "Security settings" set to "None".

 

WHY are you using WinSCP in all this? :unsure:

 

:cheers:

TFTP and FTP and SSH (for SCP) are not the same things.  TFTPD32 can service TFTP clients, but not FTP nor SSH clients.  The idea is that your router device will act as a TFTP client.  I don't know how or why you are trying to use FTP and SCP.
