Use your TFTP server from the wiring closet or on the go!

Mobile TFTP Server for iPad iPhoneNow with Dropbox integration and large file size transfers (>32 MB)!

TFTP Server is a mobile TFTP server for your iPhone and iPad. Walk from wiring closet to wiring closet with an iPad or iPhone and have all of your current router and switch code levels and configs with you, so that you can tftp the code or config to or from the device. Don’t leave an unsecured tftp server running all the time in your network on a Windows PC or server.

Follow these steps:

1) Enable the Mobile TFTP Server on your iPhone/iPad. The IP address displayed is the IP address you will use to “put” or “get” files from.

2) Tftp the config, code, or any file you need. For example, “tftp -i -b1280 get large-ios-code.bin”. Or upload or download your file from your Dropbox account!

3) turn the TFTP server back off. That’s it!

It’s a quick way to clone configs between switches in different wiring closets, or make sure you are never stranded without a config, knowing you have a current config traveling with you.

    This app ROCKS! As a network engineer I have always had to use my laptop to connect to routers and switches to copy configs and IOS’s but now i can do it on my works Ipad.
    This is the must have app for all network engineers.

    I work in the IT department of a large multi-site corporation and this app has saved me a ton of time and hassles when I have to travel from site to site to do troubleshooting and firmware upgrades. This is an awesome little app, keep up the good work!

    Great idea for an app! But please make it available for all iOS versions! This is a life saver!

    My only problem with this is that the only reason to upload a config is in a scenario where the router/switch has gone bad and you need to get a new config on the new switch or switch that lost its config. How do you get the config back on the switch? iPads are wireless only.

      @Jeff – use the wireless connection! You can configure the router or switch with just enough information to get it on the network. One ethernet interface IP address should do it!
