Description Joshua Jensen 2005-04-20 15:55:09 UTC
Description of problem: There doesn't appear to be a component to file a bug against tftp-server itself. Other tftpd servers can... it would be nice if tftp-server was able to respond to clients trying to tftp to the broadcast address. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL4, tftp-server-0.39-1

Internal RFE bug #155495 entered; will be considered for future release.

Sorry it took some time to respond. Can you please point me to servers which support broadcast? How can I test broadcast reponses?
Comment 4 Joshua Jensen 2006-03-15 18:25:06 UTC
I believe atftp supports broadcast/multicast: http://freshmeat.net/projects/atftp/

I have only had one request from one of my end users for this feature. If this never happens it won't hurt my feelings. On the other hand, if it is time to switch tftp servers anyway, so be it.

After a bit of research I doubt it's worth the effort to implement multicasting (RFC2090 and/or PXE mtftp) in tftp, the code was created without multicasting in mind and it would need complete rewrite of some parts of the code. Better use atftp.

This can not be done in RHEL5 and 4.5. Although I agree that it should be done, we have to move it to 4.6 as it has to happen in the RHEL5 stream first.

Come to think of it, this isn't that important
