My Ariadne (1, not 2) came with a SANA-II driver floppy.
Just found https://github.com/obarthel/amiga-sana-ii-tftpclient
If you find the Ariadne2 SANA-II driver, that should allow you to use tftp.

BTW, I still have AmiTCP on the AmigaOS side.  Never tried tftp with that.

It will make you long for tunneling TFTP through SSH from a remote board

Hey, I wanted to do something similar with a C64, and DMA from a Pi
through the C64 cartridge port ;-)
