TFTP-Server Problem

Hi There,

my TFTP-Server is already running, I made the /tftpboot world readable with chmod 777 but now I always get this message:
Error code 2: Only absolute filenames allowed
Does anyone have any idea about this?

Thx, Tom

I have this issue. Not sure why but the only way I could solve it was by creating a file first and then chmod 777 on that file.

Like so:
#chmod 777 /tftpboot/
#touch /tftpboot/RouterConfig.txt
#chmod 777 /tftpboot/RouterConfig.txt

After this my router is able to save it's config to the TFTP server. It seems like a hassle that I cannot create files with tftp. Also I am using Fedora but I searched posts and found yours to be a similar issue to mine. Let me know if you have made any progress on this issue.
