I don't recall the earlier bits of this thread, but usually a tftp
server defaults to a root directory of 'tftpboot' and doesn't want
the pathname in the read request.
On a recent Red Hat box (using xinetd) the config file is
# default: off
# description: The tftp server serves files using the trivial file transfer \
# protocol. The tftp protocol is often used to boot diskless \
# workstations, download configuration files to network-aware printers, \
# and to start the installation process for some operating systems.
disable = no
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -l -s /var/www/html/tftpboot
You can tweak server_args to your taste.
