Question tftp port blocked?


Hello,

I am trying to get a tftp-hpa running. Every thing seems to be running OK, and if I `tftp localhost` everything works OK. I can get and put files.

If i try to tftp into the box from a remote machine (but on the same network) I get a connection timeout error.

My guess is that UDP port 69 is blocked, but I do not know where to even being where to start looking to fix this.

What should I be looking for? Do you have/know of any reference documents to that, that I can use to solve this problem?

Thanks!

- Andrew

Do you have any firewall rules defined? You can type "iptables -L" aqt a command prompt to list them. Also, be sure you set your tftp daemon to listen on all interfaces (not just the loopback).

Hello,

iptables -L gives me:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

As far as I can tell there are no firewall rules.
I used: in.tftpd -l -s /var/tftpboot
to start tftp, so I am assuming that it is binding to all interfaces...

Thanks!,
Andrew

Doesn't look like the firewall. If you nmap the tftp server from the remote host, does it see the tftp port being open? (Run nmap <IP of tftp server> from the remote host).

Hello,

I have found the problem, I though I had the router correctly configured but I looked over some problems...

Sorry about the mis-post.

Thanks for your time!,
