I installed a new router and trying to backup the initial configuration to our tftp server. But getting the error " %Error opening tftp://172.17.0.39/corporate-confg (Timed out)"
I can ping the tftp server from router. There is no firewall in between router and tftp server. Other network devices in the same subnet can upload / download from tftp server. Only this router can't use the tftp. I tried to install a seperate tftp server and tried but no hope with the freshly installed router. Router running config is attached. Please help me.

Solved for me.
I had this same problem. I use a Linux tftp server with owner and group with same name as the username from the switch/ router I upload and download configs / images with.
Since the switch was not configured with username and I was not logged in with username, I was getting the timeout error.
I changed the permissions on the file on the Linux box to allow others read access to the bin file in question and voilà I stopped receiving these errors.
Had timeout problem using Solarwinds TFTP on Windows 10. The fix was to add Solarwinds TFTP Server to the allowed apps. Only added it on the Private network.
Had to browse to the folder the file was in to add it.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\TFTP Server\SolarWinds TFTP Server.exe".
Works great now.
