I am implementing a Linux embedded system. I write my application on a linux desktop, cross-compile it and then use tftpd32 and PuTTY on Windows to transfer my application to a the embedded system. For example, this is what I type on PuTTY to transfer:
tftp 265000 MyApp
265000 is the address on the embedded system where I download MyApp to, from the PC. The hashes(###...)will be displayed on PuTTY until download has completed.
So I just want to work only on Linux(both writing the code and transferring). I searched this on the internet, and I got atftp
which are said to be the same as tftpd32. I also installed PuTTY for Linux(although, some find it unnecessary for Linux, when searching on the internet).
Now the problem is I do not know how I can use (configure) tftp-server
to know the location of the file that I want to transfer so that I can then type tftp 265000 MyApp
on PuTTY to start transferring. I searched a couple of sites including these ones: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-setu...in-ubuntu.html
, but could not find any help.
Could you please help me with how I can achieve file transfer to my embedded system same way as I did on Windows, or any alternative.
