    Default Tftp server

    from backtrack3 im hosting the tftp server on port 69. I have opened tcp and udp port 69 but i cant get any one to connect. . .

    http://portforward.com/english/route.../4200index.htm
    I have checked this page but nothing comes up for tftp server. . .

    i host several game servers so i have some what of a clue as to what im doing.

    Are there advanced options that need to be set?

    Have you had someone from the outside attempt a port scan against your public IP to see if port 69 actually responds?
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Your ISP could be filtering it.

    Why would you want a TFTP server running inside your firewall anyway? Do you really think that's wise?

    i would not let the server just sit and run. . .

    can i change the port tftp listens on?

    If your router is smart enough then then quick and easy way to be to listen on the outside on something like 8069 and redirect it to the inside to 69.

    Not all routers do redirection that way, though.

    Problem is, TFTP clients probably can't change the port they're connecting on, so you may just be SOL.
