I am trying to troubleshoot tftp on my Fedora 22 to see if it is working or not. All I want to do is transfer a file between two systems. The commands I am finding online are not working. All I need is the command and the directory where the files will go on both ends. I get a connection established to the tftp but when I do a get it times out.


You tftp server setting can be viewed in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp.

server_args = -s /tftproot # tftproot is where your tftp base directory.

Say you tftp server is hostx

From hosty, try this command

tftp hostx

> tftp get file # file is any file under this /tftproot directory.

> tftp quit

ls -l file
