How to install TFTP server on Ubuntu

What is TFTP?

Tftpd is a server which supports the Internet Trivial File Transfer Protocol (RFC 783). The TFTP server operates at the port indicated in the `tftp’ service description and the server is normally started by inetd or the latest xinetd.

The trivial file transfer protocol (TFTP) is a UDP-based file transfer program that is frequently used to allow diskless hosts to boot over the network. TFTP is implemented by the tftp client program and the tftpd server program. Because TFTP has no user authentication, it may be possible for unwanted file transfer to occur. It is a significant threat that tftp may be used to steal password files.Read More
