Anyone know El Cap TFTP setup?

Trying to set up the TFTP server on my mac for Dante switch management purposes.

Running El Cap, have the TFTP turned on, but can't send any files to or from my Cisco SG300 switch.

Anyone have a good handle on the THTP on a Mac and help me to figure out why the "server is unavailable." I'm stumped.

What issues are you having? Generally when I see problems with TFTP and network gear it's that the TFTP server isn't set up for "anonymous" FTP. Usually you have to configure the TFTP server for this by specifically permitting it and assigning an account on the system (don't use root!) that will get used for all anonymous connections. That account must have permissions for the tftp service's folder(s).

Yes, I am really annoyed. But I fixed it. I borrowed a friend's decade-old WinXP computer and updated the firmware on my two switches in about no-time. Sometimes, I hate being a Mac fan-boy
