tftp timeout while booting .

I am getting time out while installing the machine with tftp.
The dhcp server is different than TFTP server. I've set parameters in the dhcpd.conf

next-server $IP address;
filename "pxelinux.0";

Error on client side while booting
PXE-E32 TFTP open Timeout.

No tftp service found running on the machine.
# netstat -ntulp | grep -i tftp

check whether you can reach tftp server from another machine(which should be in same sub network) or not..

& check whether the service xinetd is runiing or not

root@machine:# netstat -atulp |grep -i tftp
udp 0 0 *:tftp *:* 2807/xinetd
