Installing TFTP Server in Windows 2000

  1. Expand the TFTP daemon executable from the Windows 2000 CD-ROM:

    expand tftpd.ex_ %windir%\System32\tftpd.exe

  2. Use the instsrv tool from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit (contained in COMPMGMT.CAB) to install the service:

    instsrv TFTPD %windir%\System32\tftpd.exe

  3. Use Registry Editor (regedit) to add a key under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TFTPD called Parameters.

  4. Create a string (REG_SZ) value to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TFTPD\Parameters called Directory and populate it with c:\tftproot.

  5. If only read access is required, the service can be made more secure by disabling write access. To do this, create a numeric value (REG_DWORD) under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TFTPD\Parameters called Masters and populate it with 0. (See also Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-077.)

  6. Create the folder c:\tftproot.

  7. Start the service:

    net start tftpd
