Re: Need help with tftp problems

Quite possibly you missed the point that tftpd should run as its own user and not as nobody.

Granted, nobody is better than root. BUT... nobody is given no permissions via SELinux... and I think that should be blocking it from working.

Try the defaults first - it already is supposed to be run as nobody, but the way it gets there may be different than that from the -u option which sets the privileges via /etc/shadow, and you don't want to muck with those as the nobody account gets used for a lot of other things too.

BTW, you also need to check the security labels on the files tftpboot is to provide. I don't think you want them writable at any time either.
