Configure Mac OS X TFTP server.

Overview

TftpServer is a utility which helps you to utilize and configure the TFTP server shipped with the standard Mac OSX distribution.

Using this application you can start/stop the TFTP service on your Mac and change its working path, that's where the files are sent to and received from by any TFTP client (e.g. a Cisco router or switch). In addition, other features are available to help you to seamlessly send and receive files from any TFTP enabled device to a Mac acting as TFTP server. This is useful if you have a lot of network devices and want to store in a safe place all their configuration files and operating system binary images. These files can be reused later (or modified using a text editor on your Mac) to easily configure from scratch other similar devices or update their system image files.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

Highly recommended tool! Without any knowledge about TFTP was the setup of TFTP server a question of 2 minutes! With this tool I could load firmware image to FortiGate 60 and save my firewall, which was not working (unfinished firmware upgrade through web interface). Thank you to the developer for this usefull tool!

Please help

Works great but I am unable to find a way to enable logging. This is very useful to see if your TFTP transfers are working as expected. I would expect to see file transfers showing up in the Log Viewer tab but I only see start and stop activities. Thoughts?

I'm having the same issue that lukewarms is... Working Path Permissions - OK, Parent folders permissions - OK... but when I click Start TFTP, the status doesn't change. The log file says:

[date] [time] [computer-name.local] TftpServer[9356]: load TFTPServer ...

I can't get the Server Status to change from "Stopped."

Thanks in advance for your help.

The read/write permissions need to be set for all users on the working folder. If the "fix" button does not work, use "chmod -R 777 /private/tftpboot" as root user in a terminal window The GUI should now confirm that Attributes are OK

It's better to use a different directory for TFTP, better if it is into your Home folder. It's not safe to use /private/tftpboot because /private also store some important system files.
