NAME
tftpd - DARPA Trivial File Transfer Protocol server SYNOPSIS
tftpd [ directory ... ] DESCRIPTION
Tftpd is a server which supports the DARPA Trivial File Transfer Protocol. The TFTP server operates at the port indicated in the ``tftp'' service description; see services(5). The server is normally started by inetd(8). The use of tftp does not require an account or password on the remote system. Due to the lack of authentication information, tftpd will allow only publicly readable files to be accessed. Files may be written only if they already exist and are publicly writable. Note that this extends the concept of ``public'' to include all users on all hosts that can be reached through the network; this may not be appropri- ate on all systems, and its implications should be considered before enabling tftp service. The server should have the user ID with the lowest possible privilege. Access to files may be restricted by invoking tftpd with a list of directories by including pathnames as server program arguments in /etc/inetd.conf. In this case access is restricted to files whose names are prefixed by the one of the given directories. SEE ALSO

Syntax

Description
       The  server, supports the DARPA Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP).  The TFTP server is invoked when receives a packet on the port indi-
       cated in the TFTP service description.  The server is not normally started by default from

       The use of does not require an account or password on the remote system.  Because of the lack of  authentication  information,  will  allow
       only  publicly  readable  files	to  be accessed.  This extends the concept of public to include all users on all hosts that can be reached
       through the network.  This may not be appropriate on all systems however, and its implications should be considered  before  enabling  TFTP
       service.

       The server should have the user ID with the lowest possible privilege.

Options
       -r pathname    The pathname can be the choice of the user.  For example, would allow only files below to be copied using

Restrictions
       This  server  is  known	only  to  be self consistent, that is, it operates with the user TFTP program, Because of the unreliability of the
       transport protocol (UDP) and the scarcity of TFTP implementations, it is uncertain whether it really works.

       The search permissions of the directories leading to the files accessed are not checked.
