Using the 1.2.13 Slackware distribution, how do I set up the TFTPD server? I have created a user, TFTP, created the directory /TFTPBOOT, TFTP has 777 access to it as does the group guest.
I use touch to create the file in the directory, verify ownership and attribute, then have the client (cisco router) send the file.
The server always kicks back with an access violation.
In /etc/inetd.conf I have used the lines:
tftp dgram udp wait tftp /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
tftp dgram udp wait tftp /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
with the same results. The answer is not in the source distribution and I cannot find a MAN page for tftpd anywhere.
