Question TFTP Error code 1: File not found


I am using tftp to get some files from a remote server. I am getting this error "Error code 1: File not found" when I try to fetch a file that is present at the other end.

I have made sure that the file is present at the remote host.

Can anyone please guide me to know that what could be the other possible reasons for this error?

Could you indicate the exact command you issued whose output was that error message ?

Touch a file

Some times you have to touch(create) a file before transferring using tftp. As Didier said, you are not being very clear on your scenario.

I can create this scenario as example:
When backing up (copying)a Cisco IOS through a tftp server in a linux box, you first have to touch the file (create a file in your linux box) before transfer, otherwise you will get: (No such file or directory).

In your case, it seems you have to touch a file locally.

Good Luck!
