    1. Hi Frank,

      I see this article was incomplete. I just had it recorded of what tools to use for testing the TFTP from Windows client system. I haven’t focused on successful cases. Will soon update it with successful cases as well so that readers find how it looks like in working cases. Let me know if you are looking for any further details.
