Description simon Allcorn 2001-08-16 08:40:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Description of problem:
the line 
tftp           69/tcp
needs to be removed from /etc/services to use tftp with xinetd

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
2. restart xinetd
3. find this line in /var/log/messages:
xinetd[1465]: socket creation failed (Protocol not supported (errno = 
93)). service = tftp
4. that's it

Actual Results:  xinedt wouldn't start tftpd

Expected Results:  xinedt would start tftpd

This is a problem with the xinetd config file for tftp if it doesn't specify the
right protocol.
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2001-09-04 09:35:31 EDT
I just verified this with the tftp and xinetd packages of the Roswell Beta and
it works out of the box using these commands:

rpm -Uvh tftp-0.17-14.i386.rpm  tftp-server-0.17-14.i386.rpm
chkconfig tftp on
service xinetd restart

You now need to create the directory /tftpboot and put your files in there.

Then doing the following works:

tftp localhost
tftp> get message
Received 23227 bytes in 0.1 seconds

So i'd like to ask you to try the latest packages, they work for me.

Read ya, Phil

As i haven't received any input in the last 2 months i assume that this is fixed.

Read ya, Phil
