Apologies if I'm telling you something you already know but that would
mean your TFTP server isn't protected.

This seems vaugely familiar.  I have a vauge memory of having problems
getting a Sun machine to netboot and finding out it was a cabling
problem.  Have you tried swaping the Sun machine for another boxen and
pulling the netboot file from the server?  This should tell you if it's
a cabling / switch problem.
