I'm a bit new to version 14.04 of Ubuntu:
No LSB modules are available.
I am trying to set up a tftp server, mostly for backup up cisco ios configs. I have followed every tutorial I can, and I'm getting nowhere. The problem seems to be a timeout, waiting for the write request from the client side:
Before I try to transfer:
ps -aux | grep tftp root 7804 0.0 0.0 15128 160 ? Ss 10:48 0:00 /usr/sbin/in.tftpd --listen --user tftp --address 0.0.0.0:69 --secure -c -vv -i /var/lib/tftpboot
After I use my windows 7 tftp client to send a put request:
jarrod@Dangerfield:~$ ps -aux | grep tftp root 7804 0.0 0.0 15128 160 ? Ss 10:48 0:00 /usr/sbin/in.tftpd --listen --user tftp --address 0.0.0.0:69 --secure -c -vv -i /var/lib/tftpboot tftp 8819 0.0 0.0 15132 632 ? S 11:04 0:00 /usr/sbin/in.tftpd --listen --user tftp --address 0.0.0.0:69 --secure -c -vv -i /var/lib/tftpboot
You can see it open the second connection and then it just times out.
It then creates an empty file:
-rw-rw-rw- 1 tftp tftp 0 Apr 28 11:04 AcousticList.txt
drwxrwxrwx 2 tftp tftp 4096 Apr 28 11:04 tftpboot
These are my defaults:
:/etc/default$ more tftpd-hpa # /etc/default/tftpd-hpa #RUN_DAEMON="yes" TFTP_USERNAME="tftp" TFTP_DIRECTORY="/var/lib/tftpboot" TFTP_ADDRESS="0.0.0.0:69" TFTP_OPTIONS="--secure -c -vv -i"
I have the -c for create files, secure for the one directory, -vv for verbose logging.
I found the i option on one of the help files. Adding that did not help nor hurt. It always does the same thing.
UFW is disabled.
/etc/default$ sudo service ufw status ufw stop/waiting
I can't see anything else that would be stopping this.
I kill -9 the root and tftp user processes. The root process starts again listening immediately. The tftp user process only starts when you initiate the tftp transfer. This is just using upstart. I have tried running it in stand alone with the same result.
in.tftpd: WRQ from 192.168.0.6 filename AcousticList.txt
I have tried running
sudo tcpdump -vvv -i eth0 | grep tftp
I'm not really getting any further than the write request is coming in, then there is a timeout on the client end.
If anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it as I am at a dead end.
