Default tftp server test fail


I'm stuck at the tftp server test. I'm clueless on what to do to solve this. Can someone advise me on how to solve this?

[root@imageserver root]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
# 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.
service tftp
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -s y -r blksize
disable = no
[root@imageserver root]# tftp
tftp> connect
(to) localhost
tftp> status
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Mode: netascii Verbose: off Tracing: off
Rexmt-interval: 5 seconds, Max-timeout: 25 seconds
tftp> quit
[root@imageserver root]# si_mkbootserver
