10.4: TFTPd configuration and usage
Authored by: nKhona on Feb 22, '07 09:10:45PM

I've noticed a file limit of around 26MB with the TFTP server, both up and down. Anyone else seen the same thing?

10.4: TFTPd configuration and usage
Authored by: mlc on Feb 27, '07 10:52:05PM
This is from the tftp man page:
blksize blk-size
              Set the tftp blksize option to blk-size octets (8-bit bytes).
              Since the number of blocks in a tftp get or put is 65535, the
              default block size of 512 bytes only allows a maximum of just
              under 32 megabytes to be transferred.  The value given for
              blk-size must be between 8 and 65464, inclusive.  Note that many
              servers will not respect this option.
I would assume that most routers, etc. would likely use the default block size. If this is configurable on your router, you might try increasing the size to accommodate.
