Re: atfptd in squeeze won't do anything



Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'm looking to set up a PXE server. The permissions on the directory provided to atftpd are 777 as specified in the usage. I don't see how host.{allow,deny} make any difference with whether or not the server starts. I'll give tftp-hpa a try, and I'll look in to gpxe.

Thanks,

I've only ever used tftp for pxe servers - deprecated with gpxe (http is
much faster and simpler) - if that's what you want to use tftp for
you'll find tftpd-hpa much simpler to configure.

What permissions do you have on the directory being served??

Have you set up:-
/etc/hosts.allow
/etc/hosts.deny
??

If you can tell me a little more about what you want to use tftp for
more it may be helpful.

Cheers
