1.223.1.  RHEA-2009:1274: enhancement update

Updated tftp packages that add support for IPv6 and correct errors in documentation are now available.
The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is normally used only for booting diskless workstations. The tftp package provides the user interface for TFTP, which allows users to transfer files to and from a remote machine. The tftp-server package provides the server for TFTP which allows users to transfer files to and from a remote machine.
These updated packages make the following changes.
  • tftp has been re-based to version 0.49. This applies several upstream feature updates and bug fixes, including, most importantly, support IPv6. (BZ#464096)
  • two spelling corrections were made to the tftp server man page (in.tftpd.8) and the NAME section of both the client (tftp.1) and server man pages was edited. (BZ#501482)
All users of tftp-server should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
