Running a TFTP server
TFTP, or Trivial File Transfer Protocol is a protocol that can be used for quickly shuttling files about. While similar to FTP, TFTP has no username and password (in most cases) and should not be running when we do not need it. It’s still in use today for a number of appliances such as routers and switches, to get firmware and occasionally configuration files.
There’s a nice little GUI utility that can be used to control the TFTP server on Mac OS X. It’s called TFTPServer. We can obtain it here. Once we have downloaded it, we can open the application and we will be placed into the main application screen. By default, the TFTP server will share out the /private/tftpboot directory but this can easily be changed.
Open TFTP Server is an alternative for all Windows users.1. We will change the path to the tftpboot directory.
2. Fix the permissions for the tftpboot directory.
3. Start the TFTP server.
