I have a centos 5 box I have setup, current with updates. (I have done
this many times on centos 4).
I did the yum install tftp-server, changed the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file
# default: off
# description: The tftp server serves files using the trivial file
# protocol. The tftp protocol is often used to boot diskless \
# workstations, download configuration files to network-aware
# and to start the installation process for some operating systems.
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -v -s /tftpboot
disable = no
per_source = 11
cps = 100 2
flags = IPv4
Did the service xinetd restart.
Now from another computer on the network I am trying manually "tftp IP
-c get myfile"
and nothing happens.
/tftpboot permissions are: drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Oct 2 16:26
the myfile is also world readable in that directory.
I have disabled the iptables "service iptables stop".
I ran "tcpdump port 69" to show me all tftp traffic an I see NOTHING
when I manually
run the tftp command above on another computer.
The second computer can ssh into the server no problem.
I can, on the server, to tftp localhost -c get myfile and that works fine.
What or HOW can I determine why I cannot tftp from that machine?
This seems so straight forward.
Thanks, frustrated me...
