Cisco TFTP Configuration

Cisco TFTP Configuration

Cisco TFTP, a Windows 2000 service, builds and serves files consistent with the Trivial File Transfer Protocol. TFTP represents a simplified version of the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Cisco TFTP serves embedded component executable, ringer files, and configuration files.

This section describes how to configure Cisco TFTP parameters.

Before You Begin

Make sure that the following prerequisites are met before proceeding with the steps:

Make sure that servers are configured. See the "Server Configuration" section.

Activate the Cisco TFTP service on the appropriate server. You only need to configure Cisco TFTP service on one server in a network, unless you want to have a backup or a fallback TFTP server. For information on activating services, refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide.

To avoid performance issues, Cisco recommends that you configure a dedicated TFTP server (separate from the Cisco CallManager server) if you have many phones and gateways in your network. Cisco CallManager and Cisco TFTP services can run on the same server in small configurations only (for example, in a network with fewer than 2500 phones).


Step 1 Choose Service > Cisco TFTP.

Step 2 From the Cisco TFTP Servers list, choose the server on which you want to configure parameters.

Note You must activate the Cisco TFTP service on a server before the server displays in the TFTP servers list. To activate the Cisco TFTP service on a different server, refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide.

The window refreshes.

Step 3 You can modify the service parameters, if necessary.

To view a list of parameters and their descriptions, click the i button in the upper, right corner of the window. To view the list with a particular parameter at the top, click that parameter in the Service Parameter Configuration window.

Caution Some changes to service parameters may cause system failure. Cisco recommends that you do not make any changes to service parameters unless you fully understand the feature that you are changing or unless the changes are specified by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

Step 4 Click Update.

Step 5 To configure trace settings, click the Trace Configuration link.

Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration displays. For more information on configuring trace, refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide and Cisco CallManager Serviceability System Guide.
