SolarWinds has released an updated version of its TFTP Server, which allows network engineers to back up configurations, change community strings, and run IOS updates..
The company said that the multi-threaded TFTP Server helps network engineers with projects ranging from file transfers up to 4GB to network auditing projects. Rather than manually enter network command lines, users can download the free TFTP Server to upload/download executable images and configurations to routers, switches, firewalls, and other network infrastructure devices.
According to SolarWinds, the features of the updated version of TFTP server include, transfer files up to 4GB supporting the latest IOS or firmware versions without file size concerns; advanced security, which authorises specific IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses for transfers; multi-threaded, which concurrently uploads and downloads images from multiple network devices; delivers 24 x 7 TFTP Server availability for an entire network; and offers 64 bit OS support, improved error handling, and multiple subnet binding.
Josh Stephens, head geek of SolarWinds, said: Configuration management is a part of every network engineer’s standard maintenance, but with high user activity throughout the year, it’s often difficult to apply changes without running the risk of causing a disruption. With the end of year approaching, it’s a good time for network administrators to take advantage of downtime and a lower risk environment while users are out of the office. And, this updated version of our free TFTP Server is a great tool to help them get started.”
