Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have installed TFTP Server on CentOS 5.1 but I'm having a problem getting it to work. It keeps timing out.
xinetd tftp tftp-server
chkconfig on xinetd
chkconfig on tftp
service xinetd restart
Stopping xinetd: [ OK ]
Starting xinetd: [ OK ]
[root@ ~ tftpboot]# less /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
# default: off
# description: The tftp server serves files using the trivial file transfer \
# protocol. The tftp protocol is often used to boot diskless \
# workstations, download configuration files to network-aware printers, \
# and to start the installation process for some operating systems.
disable = no
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -s /tftpboot -u root -c
per_source = 11
cps = 100 2
flags = IPv4
ACCEPT tcp -- 0-224-93-208.~ .net/22 anywhere tcp state NEW
ACCEPT udp -- 0-224-93-208. ~ .net/22 anywhere udp dpt:tftp state NEW
Source server and Destination server are both on the same subnet (from iptables listing)!
[root@ ~ Desktop]# tftp -v 18.104.22.168 -c put test.txt
Connected to 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199), port 69
putting test.txt to 188.8.131.52:test.txt [netascii]
Transfer timed out.
After the source server says timed out. I checked the destination server (/tftpboot) and I have *part* of the file, but with no data in the file. Could someone assist me on how to fix this? Thank you.
