I've just installed tftp and tftpd package by apt-get. But, I could

where is the tftp script. In FC6, the tftp script is in xinit.d. In
Debian, there is not xinit.d.

How can I check whether the tftp server is running or not? And, if
not, which command I can call to run the tftp server?

Thank you.


I don't think Debian uses xinetd by default.  It puts everything in the
inetd.conf file.  You can manually move the entries over to an xinetd file.

Indeed, the tftp is in inetd.conf file.  But, how can I
run/restart/stop tftp server? Also, how can I check whether the tftp
server is running or not? I checked ps and grep with in.tftpd, but
could not find it.

Thank you Jeff.


Anything running from inetd is not running all of the time. Processes that start from inetd only start when a connection from the outside hits that port. There is no daemon program running when run form inetd. I am not sure if tftpd is a daemon type server.
