service tftpd-hpa start|stop|restart|status

That should do it for you.

Not sure if it is possible for RHEL. tftp is based on xinetd and therefore you would need to restart xinetd. All other services under xinetd will be briefly unavailable but it should take few seconds.

tftpd-hpa is debian based. You will need to install additional packages for it.

all xinetd services are started on demand, so you mae a new tftp connection and new tftpd is started.
