[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:

    cat > /usr/local/etc/dnsmasq.conf <<eof<br>enable-tftp

    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         *.*

    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.


  • 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. :)
