Toggle verbose and trace mode to figure out what's going on.

Try one file per get.
Try using forward slashes.

# tftp <hostname>

then make sure you are connected

# status

then just

get <path to filename>

see if you can do that - if not tftp could be mis-configured in inetd.conf or you dont have a windows tftp server -

The tftp line should look something like this -

# TFTPD - tftp server (primarily used for booting)
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd in.tftpd

If you have to change it I suggest a reboot afterwards - HUP-ing inetd sometimes does not work

You will also need a Windows tftp server - it does not have one - I like - and use the FREE tftp server - you will need to download - install - start - and then configure because you might want to change the default directory that is shared out ( C:/TFTPBOOT is the default) make sure to click on the security tab and change it too - transmit and recieve -

If you set them both up right you should be able to tftp between both machines -

I had a problem like this with one of our machines this week and the inetd.conf was the problem - I hope this helps -
