Question Configure a TFTP server with Debian


How do I set-up a TFTP server using Debian? I want to be able to back up my router configs and IOSes to a TFTP server, and I've already got this Debian box set-up. I've done an "apt-get install tftpd", but after that I'm lost.

Thanks!

well i'm no tftp expert, but i have set one up before on a Fedora machine, all i did was

edit the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

service tftp
{
disable = no
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -s /tftpboot
per_source = 11
cps = 100 2
flags = IPv4
}

make sure disable = no

then i restarted xinetd

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

then to test it out in the command line just type

tftp

I did success installing tftp server by doing the following steps.
1) get and install tftpd package by using apt-get install tftpd
2) after installed successful, check /etc/inetd.conf to see if the tftp setting is there.
In my case, the setting for store file is set to /srv/tftp. Hope the information is useful for someone.

The previous steps work OK, only to add:
3)if you want start the tfpt server immediatelly, execute:
killall -HUP inetd
