TFTP stands for Trivial File Transfer Protocol. It is mainly used for automated file transfers between machines on UDP Port 69. In a VoIP environment, TFTP is used to upload firmware files to Gateways, Phones, and other hardware.
There are a lot of free and open-source TFTP servers available, such as tftp32d and PumpKIN. Download one and install it as needed.
- 1.Launch PumpKIN.
- 2.From the PumpKIN menu follow to Options > Server > TFTP file system root. Point PumpKIN to the provisioning folder of your PortSIP PBX – by default: C:\ProgramData\PortSIP\pbx\provision\R2Xu8aVV20Jka. Where R2Xu8aVV20Jka is the randomly generated provisioning folder name. This folder will be used to place files you need to upload via TFTP or download.
