    WDS TFTP Timeout!

    Hey Guys

    Trying to image a computer, the client finds the WDS server but then it says TFTP Timeout and won't go any further? Not a clue why I have checked and everything I can see the server end looks fine and I haven't changed any settings? It used to work perfectly!?

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Have you tried restarting the WDS services? Is it listening on port 60?

    I have just tried restarting the Service and it hasn't made any difference, No it doesn't have the Port 60 thingy checked, I thought that was only if it was also a DHCP server? (of which it isn't)

    That only seems to be an issue if it's also a DNS server which this one isn't?

    I tried it anyway, it worked! I should have searched I'm sorry, typical user over here! Cheers @sted
