I am trying to copy my flash to a tftp server in the same subnet as my switch. The tftp server is pingable from my switch and vice versa. I see the TFTP service running in windows Vista (perform netstat -a in DOS). When I start the download "copy flash tftp 10.10.10.1 test primary", I get Flash to TFTP Error - code 5. Has anyone seen this problem. I have attached a screen shot of the error and the firmware my switch is running.

it seems your windows firewall is running and blocking your udp session. Try disabling it.
if it is not running try a different tftp server software.
another reason can be you are writing file name without its extension
you can use show flash command to see the filename.

Thanks! Had to disable firewall all together. I don't understand because initially I allowed that TFTP program access through the firewall. Well, no worries.
