Hi, I don't have anything really insightful to add, as I'm not familiar
with the procedure. But these are the areas I would start looking into:

(1) I would see if the Wireshark data could tell me more. Does it look

(2) I would double check TFTP configuration and permission
(user/group/bits) on the file. And see if TFTP logs could tell me
