Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video Configure and test TFTP, part of Practical Linux for Network Engineers: Part 2.
- [Instructor] So the software is installed.…What I'm gonna do is clear the screen…and then use nano to edit etc/default/tftpd-hpa.…Notice I'm using Tab to auto-complete.…So some default options are shown here.…The default user name is TFTP.…This is the default directory where files will be stored.…You could change that if you wanted to.…Default port number is 69.…
TFTP options are set to secure.…We need to change that.…At the moment, the TFTP server will allow downloading…of files, but not uploading.…So we need to change this option to this option…so that we can upload files to the TFTP server.…So I'm gonna add --create, per the documentation,…and I'll save the file.…
Don't forget to add sudo at the beginning.…So what I'm gonna do is add --create to the file.…And then I'll save it.…So cat /etc/default/tftpd-hpa.…There's our updated file.…Now this is the directory where files are gonna be stored.…So what I'll do is move to /var/lib$…and then use ls -l pipe grep tftpboot.…
Notice the owner is set to root.…We're going to need to change that.…
