TFTP server in Redhat Linux enterprise Server 5

How to check if my TFTP server is running in my PC?
When I grep for "69" port number I am ablwe to find the entry.
I have installed thru xinetd package.

Can someone throw some light on this.

#chkconfig --list | grep tftp <- Will tell you if it is set to run on boot.
#ps -aux | grep tftp <- will tell you if it is running.
#netstat -a | grep tftp <- will tell you if its running on the right port
# ss -ua | grep tftp <- will tell you if its running on the right port
#nmap -sS server <- will show you if the service is available.

# echo "in.tftpd:" >> /etc/hosts.allow <- Will allow a host access
# echo "in.tftpd: ALL" >> /etc/hosts.deny <- Will block everyone else.

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 69 -j ACCEPT <- Added to iptables will allow the traffic

Thats all I got..
