I tried creating a file in the /tftpboot directory to test a tftp transfer but it didnt work and now si_mkbootserver gives another output which also fails the test. By the way, i'm running on Red Hat 9. Please Advise.
[root@imageserver root]# ls -la /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 606 Feb 9 10:19 /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
[root@imageserver root]# si_mkbootserver
