2010-11-24 09:45:06     tftp "no such file"


Message: 96176   


1.So I cannot get tftp to work under Ubuntu 10.04


I follow the instructions at http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=setting_up_a_tftp_server


After typing


/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -V


I get:


tftp-hpa 5.0, with remap, with tcpwrappers


then I follow the rest of the instructions. However when I type:


$ tftp localhost

tftp> get foo

no such file


However the foo file is stored at /tftpboot directory. I don't know how to check whether I run a firewall or not. Also what can cause such a problem? 2. Assume the board has adress, host when I type from u-boot "ping" I get "host alive" message, however when I type "ping"from host, I get 100% packet loss. Is that normal? 3.Thank you.

please read the documentation.  u-boot does not respond to pings by design.


you didnt say how you actually started up the tftp server, so you havent shown what directory exactly tftp is serving files from.

Have you actually set /tftpboot as your tftp service directory? post your /etc/default/tftpd-hpa please, in ubuntu 10.04 the default directory is /var/lib/tftpboot
