I am trying to setup a tftp server on my computer, without success.

I've tried following both this and this guide without success

$ sudo tftp localhost
tftp> get pippo.txt
Transfer timed out.
  • using the xinetd.d/tftp file suggested here it worked – suppamax Mar 2 '15 at 23:08

make sure you are sending the file from the current directory. And one more thing you can check is edit the tftp service file in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

make the setting like this

service tftp
   protocol = udp
   port = 69
   socket_type = dgram
   wait = yes
   user = nobody
   server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
   server_args = /tftpboot -s
   disable = no
