The TFTP server is enabled by default and can be managed on the Various system settings page (Log on with Administrator rights and select Administration | Various system setting from the main menu on the left). There are three modes of operation:
1) Read only
In this mode, firmware or config files should be placed in the directory:
Of course only read operations are allowed. Reads (and also Write attemps) are logged to the Logged events list.
2) Read/Write, same folder, overwrite allowed
In this mode, files should also be placed in the directory:
but besides reading also writing is allowed! Existing files are overwritten by Write operations to the same file name! All access is logged to the Logged events list.
3) Read/Write, separate folders, no overwrite
This mode also allows reading and writing but from/to different folders. Reading is allowed only from the
folder and writing only to the
folder. A “Write” attempt with a file name that already exists is not allowed in this mode! All access is logged to the Logged events list.
