atftpd (v0.7) - tftp server on ubuntu.


When I try to transfer a 36 MB file, the transfer fails, and I see the
following in syslog:

[...] atftpd[11969]: Requested file to big, increase BLKSIZE

I've tried to increase the blocksize using "--blksize 1428" option under /etc/init.d/atftpd w/ no avail.

Am I missing something?

please advice.

I know this is a very old thread, but it was not solved. Whoever searches the forums for solutions on atftpd problems can find my answer a bit usefull. Atftp still on version 0.7.

Apparently, atftp's maximum file size is around 32MB. The block size vrode was trying isn't "max file size". There is no such configuration, I have seen people with this same confusion.
