atftp

Interactive client for the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP). Its usage is mainly for testing and debugging the atftp server. A TFTP client is usually implemented in UEFI/BIOS and bootstrap programs like pxelinux when booting from LAN. The atftp client also supports non-interactive invocation for easy use in scripts.

atftpd

Multi-threaded TFTP server implementing all options (option extension and multicast) as specified in RFC1350, RFC2090, RFC2347, RFC2348 and RFC2349. Atftpd also supports multicast protocol known as mtftp, defined in the PXE specification. The server is socket activated by default but supports being started from inetd(8) as well as in daemon mode using init scripts.
