TFTP GET transfer failing for some clients

This never dawned on me, but I spent too much time today figuring out why certain machines were unable to get files from a certain TFTP server. It turns out the “Certain TFTP Server” was not at all the issue. The tftp client (at least the one I’m using) opens up UDP port 34362 and waits for the server to drop data to it.

This of course means that you need to allow that traffic through the firewall.


About andyortlieb

I've been a tinkerer and a lazy ideologist since I gained my first personal computer in 1989. I have an aversion to formal education and I prefer to learn things by experimentation. That is not a brag, it has not been a particularly helpful set of traits. My primary goals are to increase my safety, pleasure and usefulness as I work to build and modify technologies that will bring those same attributes to the masses irrespective of government. This is the documentation of my attempt at that journey.
