Did the job! - I don’t know much about this TFTP stuff, but I was stumped while trying to update my Netgear router with terrible documentation. THIS WORKED!

Very limited - I was really hoping it would at least let me choose the destination directory. Guess not. Another $1.99 wasted. Should have just stuck with the command line.

Does not work - Tried to upload a file, but the app says error: file does not exist. Even though the file does exist and I used the "file" button to select it. Total waste of money.

Works well, as described in the instructions - OS X on the Mac already has a TFTP server, accessible with the tftp command in Terminal — which you can easily verify. However, the command line interface is awkward to use; for help, type: man tftp TFTP Client provides a useful GUI to the tftp command. For example, my router went south when there was a power surge; the firmware was corrupted. I followed the router manufacturer’s instructions to reset the IP address of my Mac, connected the Mac to an Ethernet port on the router, and then used TFTP Client to upload the new firmware. It worked like a charm. I turned off WiFi in Network Preferences on the Mac, set a static IP address to 192.168.1.2 (mask 255.255.255.0), and then in TFTP Client set the router address to 192.168.1.1, selected the router firmware file, made sure the Send button was pressed, and then clicked Start. Transfer of the file took about 15 min. I waited a few minutes after transfer for the router to finish loading the file, rebooted the router, and then reset the Mac Ethernet to use DHCP — got an IP address right away from the router, and could log on the admin page in the router from my browser. One router was saved. The transfer speed was slow, but I didn’t try it with just the tftp command, so that may be normal for the Mac and the TFTP server on that particular router. The UI for TFTP Client is not great — there is no Help menu, but help is available in About TFTP Client.
