Any suggestions as to what I can do to track down the cause of these
Thanks for your detailed reply, Bob.
First, look in /etc/inetd.conf for a line configuring tftp. You might
find a line there that looks similar to this:
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot
tony@tony-lx:~$ grep tftp /etc/inetd.conf
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot
Then additionally you have probably installed one of the available
tftpd packages in Debian and it started a daemon standalone.
dpkg -l | grep tftp
tony@tony-lx:~$ dpkg -l |grep tftp
ii tftpd-hpa 5.0-18
HPA's tftp server
For example you may have installed tftpd-hpa. In which case it is
already running a daemon.
$ ps -e | grep tftp
2154 ? 00:00:00 in.tftpd
tony@tony-lx:~$ ps -e | grep tftp
So, how to proceed from here?
Thanks again, Tony
