TFTP server returns "Error Code 0: Permission Denied"


TFTP server returns "Error Code 0: Permission Denied"

if you get this error, make sure the tftp folder access permission.

change it to chmod 777 /var/lib/tftpboot.

[EDIT]: So you are changing the permission of tftpboot folder such that anybody can access it. Beware of it!! 

The above is bit dangerous to play with, better way is :

chgrp -R tftpd /var/lib/tftpboot

Adjust the permission as per your need.
