tftpd-hpa: "Failed to start"

Post by ^rooker »

[PROBLEM]
in.tftpd[1802]: no user --address: Success
[SOLUTION]
For some strange, uncomfortable and unfortunately unresolved reason, my "/etc/default/tftpd-hpa" configuration file was gone :shock:
So I recreated it from this post on askubuntu.com:

Code: Select all

TFTP_USERNAME="tftp"
TFTP_DIRECTORY="/home/tftp"
TFTP_ADDRESS="0.0.0.0:69"
TFTP_OPTIONS="--secure"
Then restarted xinetd and tftpd-hpa service.
Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
