Re: Debian 9 tftp issue




Thank you for that!
Now I can indeed see the files requested by my tests.

Now the funny part is that I've decided to try a VM again, and boot a netboot.xyz.kpxe file. And that worked!

However, I can still not test to get a file, even with the tftp-hpa client on the machine where I'm hosting the VM.
Anyway, thank you guys very much! Maybe with time and experiments I'll figure it out :)

That's normal behavior for netstat and UDP ports. My nameserver for example:

tcp        0      0 172.17.170.1:53             0.0.0.0:*
   LISTEN      25         13544      3208/named
udp        0      0 172.17.170.1:53             0.0.0.0:*
               25         13543      3208/named

You can add (multiple) -v switches to TFTP_OPTIONS for turning on more
verbose logging.
