Here is a short post. I was upgrading my ASA 5505’s firmware, and encountered an error stating (Access violation)
BFWASA# copy tftp://10.1.1.100/asa846-k8.bin disk0: Address or name of remote host [10.1.1.100]? Source filename [asa846-k8.bin]? Destination filename [asa846-k8.bin]? Accessing tftp://10.1.1.100/asa846-k8.bin... %Error reading tftp://10.1.1.100/asa846-k8.bin (Access violation) BFWASA#
The fix for this is:
- Navigate to firmware location on your OSX
- Click on the firmware in question and press command + i
- This should open the Get Info window. Now, scroll down at the very bottom, and change the everyone access from No access to Read only
That should fix the (Access violation) when transferring a file via TFTP server.
