configuring tftp server in Ubuntu

We use tftp server for network boots. Loading images etc. In this post we will see how to set up a tftp server in Ubuntu.

Install xinetd:
tftp doesn't have a daemon of its own. So it uses xinetd for service control. It is not installed in Ubuntu by default.
apt-get install xinetd

Now install tftpd:
apt-get install tftpd
