I'd like to test if a tFTP server is up and if it's up I'm downloading some scripts on to the switch. Right now I'm trying to download a dummy file from the tFTP server using this command
tftp get serverIP dummyFile.xsf
if the tftp server is up, I get a reply very fast that the file is not available. But if the server is down the timeout for the tftp command is 60 seconds. It is very long in my application. I'd like to decrease it to 5-6 seconds. Is this possible?
Is there any other method to find out if the server is up or not?
BTW, I've tried to ping the tFTP server but even when it's up I get this errPacket transmit error: Packet transmit error; Destination unreachable
