Here's the dump of /etc/xinetd.d/tftp:

[root at trixbox2 xinetd.d]# cat tftp
# default: off
# description: The tftp server serves files using the trivial file
transfer protocol. The tftp protocol is often used to boot diskless
workstations, download configuration files to network-aware printers,
and to start the installation process for some operating systems.
service tftp
        disable = no
        socket_type             = dgram
        protocol                = udp
        wait                    = yes
        user                    = root
        server                  = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
        server_args             = --logfile /var/log/atftpd.log
        per_source              = 11
        cps                     = 100 2
        flags                   = IPv4
[root at trixbox2 xinetd.d]#

Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.
