    Question TFTP2 firmware install on samsung printer


    Hi devshed,

    I had a problem with a recent firmware update on a samsung printer

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to get TFTP to install the firmware on a bricked printer. I have the old ip settings on the printer.

    I have seen a couple posts about people upgrading the printer firmwares with TFTP. I have TFTP2.exe on this computer.

    any help would be appreciated.

    TFTP is a client-server protocol. What you have (TFTP2.exe) is a client component. Your printer should be running a TFTP server. TFTP is a tricky protocol, because it doesn't allow you to list files on a remote server. You need to know the exact path of the firmware to be able to upgrade it. You need to run your program and replace the firmware with the put command. You should target the IP address of the printer; the default port is UDP 69. Here is how you can do it with a Lexmark printer:
