At the serial console you can check the ip address of the module with the below command
CCWMX51 # printenv ipaddr
ipaddr=10.10.1.100


Also you can check other environmental variables with the below commands
CCWMX51 # printenv_dynamic

CCWMX51 # printenv

For more information on U-Boot commands, pls check MX51 U-Boot reference manual at the below link

this error means that your module was able to successfully establish TFTP connection with your host Linux machine running TFTP server, however it was not able retrieve file u-boot-ccwmx51js.bin either because it's not there or because permissions are not set correctly on your host. Are you using Ubuntu installed from LiveDVD of Digi Embedded Linux 5.9. In that case tftp server is preinstalled and preconfigured, just make sure you copy files you wish to serve over tftp to /tftpboot folder
