Hi All,

I have a Trixbox server (CentOS derivative) from which our Cisco IP
phones get their config files via TFTP.

I have noticed that when I run the TFTP server via "service xinetd
start", I am not able to get files via TFTP. I have tested it by doing
a manual transfer via a TFTP client from another machine.

When I try to run the TFTP service manually by doing
"/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -l", I do not encounter any problem whatsoever?

Any pointers regarding this issue? Do I have to enable anything else?
