TFTP server configuration to prep for LTIB

In the guide "Setting Up a Linux Host for LTIB..." we have the instruction (section 1.7)


Install atftpd by running:

sudo aptitude -y install atftpd

Configure atftpd by editing /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/default/atftpd.

In both files, change the default export path (it is either /usr/var/tftpboot or /var/lib/tftpboot) to / or whatever other directory

you want to be able to download from.



However when I go to these files I have this content

[1] etc/inetd.conf

tftp   dgram    udp4    wait    nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd --tftpd-timeout 300 --retry-timeout 5 --mcast-port 1758 --mcast-addr --mcast-ttl 1 --maxthread 100 --verbose=5 /srv/tftp


[2] etc/default/atftpd


OPTIONS="--tftpd-timeout 300 --retry-timeout 5 --mcast-port 1758 --mcast-addr --mcast-ttl 1 --maxthread 100 --verbose=5 /srv/tftp"


Nothing there I can make any sense of...What should I edit? What does this have to do with the contents of the GET and PUT commands to be used later??

what is the difference between atftp and tftp?


Thank you
