Can you actually get/put files? Unless I'm misremembering, tftp
doesn't open a connection with the server until you actually attempt
a file transfer.
You can run netstat to see which ports are available on your system.
For example, on my machine, which is a tftp server, I see
$ netstat -an | more
Active Internet connections (including servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 *.22 *.* LISTEN
udp 0 0 *.67 *.*
udp 0 0 *.69 *.*
In this case, you can see ssh (tcp/22), bootps (udp/67), and tftp (udp/69)
are all available. If you don't see that line, you should be in good shape.
