this thread is quite old but I have to same error at the moment.
PXE-32: TFTP open Timeout
I think that it is because the TFTP service is not running on the OSD manager (master). With already addressed installtftp.bat the service was create but did not start, because the tftpd.exe is missing.
I have no idea where to get it or why it is not there by default.
Does anyone have a tip for me how to get the TFTP service up and running?
thank you for your reply. I din't found that KA via search function - strange!
The hole environment is only LAN,
in the exakt same subnet of the target device is a network boot listener
and DHCP ist not configured (66/67).
Does it matter that the tftp service is not running (and can't be started) on the OSD manager?
Thanks in advance,

There is no TFTP service installed/ created on the OSD manager or the network boot listener by default.
Do you see a separate TFTP service on your OSD manager? A screenshot would be helpful because I don't see one on my OSD manager in lab.
Also, tftp.exe belongs to Microsoft and is present only when the tftp client feature is installed on the server.
Please recheck the port requirements for OSD.
I was looking for the error on the Internet and there many people had the same mistake. It was then allegedly always on the TFTP service would not run. That's why I keep telling about the service.
In fact there there is a batch script in setup folder\tools\OSD
This batch installs a "Service trivial FTP Service" but fails because the tftpd.exe is missing.
We tried so far:
- different Boot Listeners in that one subnet
- an older ADK (1803) on the OSD manager
- we checked the firewall - is completly open for internal communication
We will try today to set up a new OSD directly in that subnet.
I will reply.
The Customer has two DHCP servers and he only checked one of them (66&67).
Now it works.
Thanks Philipp!! Glad to know the issue is resolved now.
