tftp-hpa only works when restart

Hi all,

I am running tftp-hpa server which was installed as shown below on Ubuntu 15.04

sudo apt-get install tftpd-hpa

The configuration file name tftp-hpa is located in /etc/defaults as shown

# /etc/default/tftpd-hpa


The problem is that I can transfer files from /var/lib/tftpboot only once. In order to perform further transfer I have to issue the restart on the server as follows.

sudo /etc/init.d/tftpd-hpa restart.

Failure to issue above command means that the tftpd server no longer respond to any tftp client request.

Any suggestions.

Add verbose logging when tftp-hpa starts and check logging within /var/log/messages to find out why it is failure at second times.

Hi nini09,

Thanks for your response. I abandon the tftpd-hpa server and installed aftpd server instead, this seems to be working okay. Having said that how do I go about adding verbose logging should in case in the future I have to use tftpd-hpa server?
