It could be a firewall problem..
Try to disable your personal firewall

yess disable your computer firewall
and vlan 1 default vlan and managemet vlan
you want management operation assign vlan 1 ip address and you make on vlan 1 software update

or you write in vlan 2 management-vlan command

good luck..

I would agree that it looks like a firewall issue on your PC. Try turning off your windows firewall temporarily (or whatever firewall you have) or if you can't, try adding a port or program exception for your tftp program

I use Pumpkin as a tftp server (its lightweight and easy to use). Windows firewall kept on blocking it so I added pumpkin as an allowed program and I was able to flash 3 2900 switches fine.

try changing the default gateway on the switch to point to the IP Address of you PC "IP Default-Gateway" and do the same one the PC (Use the ip of the switch as its default gateway) if you have not done so yet...
