TFTP Block-size Configuration
ExtremeXOS supports the TFTP client block-size option configuration based on RFC 2348, which can range from 8 octets to 65000 octets. The block-size refers to data octets and does not include TFTP header. This feature added the user configuration option for data bock-size:
- in the generic commands that are used for downloading/uploading image/configuration/log/core file etc.
- ranging from 24 bytes to 65000 bytes, taking into consideration the local/remote file name size and the current busy box TFTP client support limits.
- to support larger TFTP data packets exceeding normal MTU especially on a front-panel port in case of in-band management, enable jumbo frames on that port. Please refer "Jumbo Frames" for the usage and its functional restrictions that affect TFTP data packet transfers.
