    Pegasus (ML440 firmware folder)
    PUMPKIN.CNT
    PUMPKIN.EXE
    PUMPKIN.HLP
    PumpKIN.INF

  3. Inside the pumpkin folder, double-click PUMPKIN.EXE to start the TFTP server.
    • To make launching easier, consider creating a shortcut to PUMPKIN.exe on your desktop.
    • When Pumpkin is running, the Pumpkin icon will appear in your system tray.
