Description Need Real Name 2001-02-05 17:29:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i586)

I can't make it work at all.  It doesn't matter what settings, what user it
runs as or what the serverarguments are.  It simply reports as Service
temprorarily unavailable.
I tried the process running as root and as nobody.  I used the -c option
and the -s option.  the -s option reports as illegal (permissions on
in.tftpd probably.)  disabled = no is set in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp line from disabled = yes to disabled = no
2. restart xinetd
3. execute "touch /tftpboot/inet-gw.lamere.net.cfg

then go to the cisco router and copy running-config tftp
# host: canon.maurand.com
# filename [running-config] inet-gw.lamere.net.cfg

Error, Access denied.  

I have no access restrictions set.	

Actual Results:  Access denied at the client (and unspecified error) and
the server reports service temporarily unavailable.  I changed xinetd
logging level and tftp's to a higher level for debugging purposes, though I
don't get very much information.

Expected Results:  "File written to network successful."

I downloaded the netkit-0.16.tar.gz from Sunsite and compiled.  It fixed the
problem, which means that the in.tftpd that ships with RH 7.0 is broken.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-06 16:37:52 UTC
What did you compile? inetd or in.tftpd?

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-02-07 04:25:55 UTC
I compiled the whole thing, but I'm only using the tftpd.  I copied it 
to /usr/sbin and I changed the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp script to call it.

That one works fine.

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-09 03:16:46 UTC
This is fixed in tftp 0.17-9 (possibly earlier as well...) in Rawhide.
