Hi all,

I previously using the Red Hat 6.2 and using it to setup a DHCP/TFTP server
to do network boot to other computer.

The way to enable the tftp service is to edit the /etc/inet.conf as follows:


  # Tftp service is provided primarily for booting. Most sites
  # run this only on machines acting as "boot servers." Do not
  # uncomment this unless you *need* it.
  tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.tftpd

Restart the inetd service that manages TFTP services:

  /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet restart


After I upgrade the computer to RH8, there are no longer have
where can I enable the tftp services? And step by step guidance is welcome

Thanks in advance,

A more suitable newsgroup would be some Linux group.

Red Hat changed to xinetd from inetd. You have to set up corresponding
information in xinetd configuration file. Please noth that the xinetd
configuration file structure is different from the older one. For details,
see the xinetd documentation.
