    TFTP transfer slowness

    Steve Cupp

      We are doing BSA PXE/TFTP provisioning at a remote site. This site has one PXE/TFTP server at one of their locations and imaging works well. They have recently added a new location and when we attempt to provision a server at this location the TFTP transfer of the winpe.wim is extremely slow, so slow that it is really unusable. I've been assured that the link speed to this new location is sufficient to handle the provisioning traffic. Below are two  tracerts run from the PXE/TFTP server for this site. The first shows results to a subnet at this new location and the second shows results to a subnet at the location where the PXE/TFTP server is located.

      My question is, could the number of hops to this new location be the reason for this slowness or is it just as simple as the link speed isn't sufficient or is there something else that should be looked at?

       

      Thanks as always
