:I'm having a problem writing to a tftp server on NetBSD 1.3. No matter
:what file permissions I set for the target file I always get this error:
:tftp> put testfile
:Error code 2: Access violation
:I have set the directory to 777, file to 666, the file name is correct....
There was a significant change that nobody was told about - that I know of.
I was going to send in a patch (after writing it) but I've put it off for
Put a ``/'' in front of all filenames.
My concern is that this is not really necessary in some cases, viz. when you
have used the ``-s'' option. From the manual page:
-s tftpd will chroot(2) on startup; therefore the remote host is not
expected to pass the directory as part of the file name to transfer.
