The differences between these pakages TFTP, TFTPD, or with -HPA?


Well I did some searching to figure out what the differences between the packages. I understand the -hpa is from OpenBSD but whats the differences between TFTP and TFTPD or ATFTP and ATFTPD? I just need a simple TFTP client to send Cisco configurations to which I think all would be fine for that. Maybe some one could explain what some of the extra functions are with *D or ATFTP.

Thank you,
Kyle

D indicates a daemon.(server)
the others would be clients..

Typically with Cisco when you are on the command line and issue a tftp command you are telling the Cisco device to be a client and connect to a remote daemon(server) to put or grab a configuration or image from the server. so if that's what you are trying to do then you want TFTPD or ATFTPD on your Linux box..

So TFTP with out the daemon is just a client and can not act as a server to process requests from other clients? Thank you for the help yes the cisco devices are always clients they just have a process in them that is a GET/PUT depending on how the command is typed.

Thanks again,
Kyle
