[solved] pfSense as TFTP server



  • Hello folks,

    at least pfSense includes a tftp server in default installation: Dnsmasq

    It needs an additional little installation. Following small script does it:

    
    #!/bin/sh
    
    cat > /usr/local/etc/dnsmasq.conf <<eof<br>enable-tftp
    tftp-root=/usr/local/www/tftpboot
    EOF</eof<br> 
    

    Run it and boot pfSense. You may verify tftp with

    
    netstat -nal |grep 69
    udp6       0      0 *.69                                          *.*                                           
    udp4       0      0 *.69                   *.*                    
    udp4       0      0 127.0.0.1.6969         *.*
    
    

    Data SSD ist mounted below pfSense http server, so installers which needs http are working.
    pfSense developers should consider to add tftp configuration to web gui.

    hope that helps.

    regards
    Christian



  • Did you look at the TFTP package that's available under System->Packages->Available Packages ?

    Might be a little easier to handle for many folks. :)
