Need bundled ATFTP tool for use with ESXi

itnifl asked
Last Modified: 2015-09-02
VMWare OVF tool is bundled so that if I install it on a ESXi, it finds its libraries in the local folder. I would like a atftp tool that is bundled in the same way so I can install and use it on a ESXi server. If I install atftp in for instance Ubuntu and copy it over to the ESXi, then I get the error:
atftp: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Tried to copy in the missing file, but that doesn't change anything.
