HS TFTP is a software library in C (supplied with full source code) which implements Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) over UDP socket layer according to RFC 1350. Support for client and server side for both file get and put are provided. Up to 100 concurrent sessions are supported.
HS TFTP is supplied in a form of full ANSI C source code and binaries and would require no or minimal integration effort by the customer, assisted by Hillstone Software after sales support.
The use of HS TFTP software library is royalty free.
MODEL OF OPERATION: When user application initlialises Hs TFTP library, it provides interface callbacks for the services used by HS TFTP protocol module: timer management, memory management and event callbacks. This architecture makes it easy to port HS TFTP protocol module to any environment. HS TFTP internally at a lower layer interfaces to HS Sock library which provides UDP transport services. User application need not worry about Winsock - HS TFTP does all transmission, reception and event handling over socket layer.
TFTP module handles all protocol information flow, error recovery, acknowledgements, timeouts and so on. When it is appropriate to send next block of data HS TFTP will get next memory block from user application. Similarly, when data has been received HS TFTP module will get the next block of memory from user application to store data into
Along with XMODEM or as an alternative, TFTP is often used in embedded devices and appliances for the purpose of software or configuration upgrade or retrieval.
