xinetd is apparently executing with the privs of the root user, but if I
do a strings on in.tftpd there is a string in there

cannot drop privileges: %m

suggesting that tftpd doesn't run as root.  In fact the man page says it
runs as nobody by default I see now.

Anyway it's moot because you show tftpboot wide open for anyone to write

Nothing in /var/log/messages about the failed write?  Add -v -v -v to
the options in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp and restart xinetd, then try again...
it should be chattier in the log and maybe you get a clue.

Hi All,

guys, what is this..?

Apr 8 04:24:53 localhost in.tftpd[6352]: WRQ from filename /tftp boot

Found in /var/log/messages today after I added -v -v -v to /etc/xinetd.d/tftp as suggested by Andy Green. What I don't un, is, why does it show the time as 04:24:53 when others are per the pc clock time..? Cheers.

Mark Sargent.
