No luck again with the w/a you provided.
Here is the result of more investigation:
1) disabled (disable = yes) in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
2) reboot or just "service xinetd restart"
3) run in.tftpd
Writing to a new file still fails. This is what I discovered from /
Sep 13 23:56:39 chl1 xinetd: START: tftp pid=3036 from=10.58.2.159
That is, xinetd automatically starts TFTP when a TFTP request comes
in. 10.58.2.159 in fact is the IP address of the switch from which
I'm trying to TFTP-ing.
Checking the processes it turns out that:
[root at chl1 log]# ps -ef | grep tftp
root 3014 2813 0 23:55 pts/2 00:00:00 ./in.tftpd -c -v -u
root -s /tftpboot
root 3036 2301 0 23:56 ? 00:00:00 in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
root 3043 2888 0 23:57 pts/3 00:00:00 grep tftp
[root at chl1 log]#
two tftpd are running. Apparently the one responding is the one w/o
the '-c' option!!!
Can someone please explain to me why xinetd is starting tftp, even if
