Ubuntu as a TFTP server


Recommended Posts

One of the easiest ways to copy files from a Cisco IOS switch you don't have the ability to make changes on is to send files using TFTP.

Here is how you get TFTP Server installed, up and running on your reliable Ubuntu Server.

sudo apt-get install xinetd tftpd tftp

sudo nano /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

ADD to this new file:

service tftp


protocol = udp

port = 69

socket_type = dgram

wait = yes

user = nobody

server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd

server_args = /tftpboot

disable = no


CREATE directory
sudo mkdir /tftpboot

sudo chmod -R 777 /tftpboot

sudo chown -R nobody /tftpboot[/code]

ADD to startup

sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd start
