TFTP to FTP "converter"



  • I have a need to a TFTP to FTP converter.  Let me explain:

    Some devices I use update their firmware through TFTP. For reasons I won't get into in details, I would rather they update through FTP, mostly so that they use a login and password (which TFTP does not support). But I can't modify the devices.

    Basically, this is what I need working:

    Devices connects through TFTP to pfSense (it uses pfSense as the TFTP server), pfsense connects to a FTP server either cleartext or encrypted FTP (configurable by user) with a configured login and password and therefore allows the TFTP device to get the files from the FTP server if it was connected through TFTP.

    I have no idea of pricing, but I do have a small budget.  It can (and should I guess) be done as a package.  The aim would be to get this working on 2.0+, as I have no need for 1.2.x

    Price? I don't know, but I have a small budget for this and if anybody else is interested we could share.



  • wait,
    I'm trying to wrap my mind around this.
    You want a TFTP client to connect to a TFTP server and pull files from an FTP server that the TFTP server is connected to, as though the TFTP client were tunneled through to the FTP Server?

    Did I just reply to a troll…



  • He just needs a proxy of TFTP to FTP what is hard about it :)



  • Is there a proxy out there that does this?  I've never heard of such a thing.



  • Neither have I.  If the OP needs a little more security, tftpd-ha allows segregating the data directory on a per-client basis.
