Cisco Config Tools Error: Transfer failed bad file name

This article describes an issue where ETS Config Tools throws the following error on recently set up systems with servers and workstations:

Transfer failed bad file name


  • All versions of ETS 
  • All versions of Windows 


This error occurs when TFTP is unable to communicate over UDP port 69 (e.g. due to firewall configuration).


  1. Open port 69 (UDP) or add a firewall exception to allow communication over port 69 (UDP) for the TFTP server.
  2. Allow the configurations to be downloaded via this method.
