start tftp server, xinetd restart
In my instructions at work I have to restart the tfpt server by calling

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

But in my newly installed debian there is no xinetd under /etc/init.d and there are no man entries for xinetd.

So how would I start the tftp server ?

On many Linux distros xinetd isn't installed by default. You'd have to use one of the debian install utilities to install it. (e.g. apt-get, dpkg etc...)

Also even if it is installed it's possible tftp isn't turned on by default (or not even installed) so you may have to install and/or configure tftp in xinetd to run.

There is surprisingly enough a howto for xinetd AND tftp at the following link:,_and_xinetd

Note that it has RHEL/Fedora AND Debian/Ubuntu - be sure to use the correct setup for Debian/Ubuntu rather than RHEL/Fedora.
