Description Petr Sklenar 2008-03-13 09:24:26 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all version of tftp-server, on fedora, on rhel4
for ex: 
#rpm -q tftp tftp-server

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
tftp server, its IP =
1. #start tftp server
/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot -l
2. # create file in /tftpboot
ls /tftpboot/
##>>>>there is only ONE file
tftp client:
# tftp
tftp> get test.test
tftp> get i_dont_exist
Error code 1: File not found
tftp> quit
# ls test.test -la
-rw-r--r--  1 root devqa7 5 Mar 13 08:30 test.test
# ls i_dont_exist -la
-rw-r--r--  1 root devqa7 0 Mar 13 08:30 i_dont_exist
>>there is empty file with name "i_dont_exist"

Actual results:
it creates new empty file when the file is not found

Expected results:
when file is not found it shouldn't create new empty file with that name

Additional info:
It should be same as FTP sever. FTP server doesn't create new empty file when
that file is not found.
