Talking TFTP not working


I am trying to set up a TFTP server on my Redhat 6.2 m/c.

I have installed the server and the client packages.
I uncommented the line in /etc/inetd.conf containing the tftp settings and restarted inet.
Then,I do a "tftp <IPADDR>".
When I do a "get test" at the tftp prompt, nothing happens.It just exits telling that the transfer timed out.

test is a file that I have created under /tftpboot directory with 666 permission.

I think the server is not responding.

What server are you connecting too?

Are you trying as root, try a different user.

[user@beta user]$ tftp
tftp> status
Connected to
Mode: netascii Verbose: off Tracing: off
Rexmt-interval: 5 seconds, Max-timeout: 25 seconds

are you using

is it denied by hosts.deny / hosts.allow?
