TFTP server Not Working

Hello All,
I have installed TFTP server in my desktop with fedora 7 distribution.
And followed the guidelines for enabling it like setting the "disable" option to "no" in the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file and have also disabled the firewall options too.

Also when queried for the tftp server installation using the rpm -q tftp-server the server package installed is displayed.

After setting all the changes the service has been restarted too. But when the command tftp localhost is tried for working of the tftp server the output displayed is tftp command not found.

I have gone thru many articles in net and found what i have done is right like the points i have mentioned above.

I am confused about the behavior of the tftp server installed. Am i missing any other configurations or changes to be made for the tftp server to work.

Kindly help.

Thanks in advance.

tftp is a client. You may have the tftp-server installed and configured correctly but the client not installed.

[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa *tftp*
