Are you running tftpd on a linux box?  Try turning off your firewall !
Sometimes UDP packets are blocked .... 

Try Tftping small files 1K and see if they work ... And If by chance you are
using montavista binaries for tftpd , in all probability they wont work with
u-boot.It did not work with a PQ2FADS-ZU board for me (even for their
customer support here in INDIA).
