Permissions
Authored by: elvey on May 13, '07 09:23:28AM

I was unable to get tfptd working because the path specified didn't have the needed rights or ownership. I set up a world-readable folder in / and specified that instead as the chroot directory, and tftpd finally started working. Anything in /private/ (including anything in /var, /etc, or /tmp as the working path may not work; I couldn't get /private/var/my-tftpd-public-dir to work. (I, of course, didn't want to change the permissions on /private or /var!) The GUI app mentioned above (TftpServer.app) helped by pointing out that there was a permissions problem (though it didn't work right otherwise, e.g., it couldn't stop or start the daemon and sometimes hung making the attempt)).
