I think you got to check the location of '.bin' file.

Let me tell you the simple steps:
1. Download a new '' file (its free on
2. Unzip it (Inside that there should be 3 files- 1. tftpd32.chm, 2.tftpd32.exe, 3. tftpd32.ini)
3. Double click the tftpd32.exe
4. It will automatically reads your pc's ip address. And using the 'Currnt Directory' option, you can choose your location where you want to save your file.

Hope this has been informative for you.

even i'm facing the same issue. When we issue the command copt startup-config tftp, getting the error, "%Error opening tftp:// (Timed out)". There is no firewall enabled in the server and no other firewalls in between server and router. through tcpdump, I can see wrq request in server, however I'm not able to see any ack reply from server. Can anyone tell me, what might be the problem.
Thanks in advance.
