As you might have known by now, Pinkie is a suite of network troubleshooting tools packaged in an intuitive, easy to use user interface.
Another piece of tool that is a must have for a network administrator is a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) Server (which is often used to transfer firmware or configuration files to and from network devices). Pinkie, living up to its One Window, One App reputation, packs this tool into the same the same application while using just a single window. And it does so nicely.
Unlike some TFTP Servers available on the internet, Pinkie’s TFTP Server takes adavantage of the multi-threaded architecture; allowing it to serve multiple requests simultaneously.
On top of that, Pinkie’s TFTP Server also supports RFC 1783 (Blocksize Option) & RFC 1784 (TFTP Timeout Interval and Transfer Size Option); allowing it to support large file transfers, providing feedback as well as conserve bandwidth by making sure the devices can handle the large files.
Pinkie’s TFTP Server wasn’t the first kid on the block, but it’s certaintly a nice one and packs some of the features that aren’t available in others like giving you the feedback on transfer in progress (when available), block number count, bytes transfer as well as some other details.
Get Pinkie, try it out and let us know what you think of it.
