Angry cannot get files with tftp: too many -s directories


Greetings

I am self studying for RHCE because i don`t have enough money to get a full course hence i don`t have an instructor to help me on this one.

I trying to setup an tftp server but i cant seem to be able to get files from it.

i have installed the server:

Code:
[root@vmrehel ~]# rpm -q tftp-server
tftp-server-0.49-7.el6.x86_64
and xinetd:

Code:
[root@vmrehel ~]# rpm -q xinetd
xinetd-2.3.14-39.el6_4.x86_64
Both tftpd and xinetd are "chkconfiged" ON and running. The tftp file in the /etc/xinetd.d/ is as follows:

Code:
service tftp
{
	disable	= no
	socket_type		= dgram
	protocol		= udp
	wait			= yes
	user			= root
	server			= /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
	server_args		= --logfile /var/log/tftpd.log -vvvv -s /var/lib/tftpboot
	per_source		= 11
	cps			= 100 2
	flags
i have copied the /etc/services files as a test file under the /var/lib/tftpboot and made sure that read permissions are on for everyone.

Code:
[root@vmrehel ~]# ll /var/lib/tftpboot/
total 628
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 641020 Dec 11 14:32 services

I then connect to the tftp server and confirmed that connection is healthy:

Code:
[root@vmrehel ~]# tftp 127.0.0.1
tftp> status
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Mode: netascii Verbose: off Tracing: off Literal: off
Rexmt-interval: 5 seconds, Max-timeout: 25 seconds
tftp>
however when i try to get the file it fails:

Code:
tftp> get services /tmp/services
sent RRQ <file=services, mode=netascii>
sent RRQ <file=services, mode=netascii>
sent RRQ <file=services, mode=netascii>
sent RRQ <file=services, mode=netascii>
sent RRQ <file=services, mode=netascii>
Transfer timed out.

tftp>

and i get the following error in /var/log/messages:

Code:
Dec 11 14:48:06 vmrehel xinetd[2822]: START: tftp pid=2981 from=127.0.0.1
Dec 11 14:48:06 vmrehel in.tftpd[2981]: Unknown option: '#000'
Dec 11 14:48:06 vmrehel in.tftpd[2981]: too many -s directories
Dec 11 14:48:06 vmrehel xinetd[2822]: EXIT: tftp status=64 pid=2981 duration=0(sec)
Any ideas?

Best of luck! Should be feasible.

I am trying this on Centos 6.5 and have no problem after removing the --logfile option. With --logfile, the tftpd just dies, as it is not a valid option.

Disable tftp from the xinetd and run it standalone: in.tftpd -L <other options>.
