The basic thing for tftp to work is:

the file which we are trying to upload/downlaod must already exist in the correct location,
and must be world writeable. We need to touch the file for tftp to work.

My original question was:

>Hi Gurus,
>I am trying to setup tftp and syslog server on Solaris 8.
>For tftp server i did following:
>1) uncomment the line tftp    dgram   udp6    wait    root    
>/usr/sbin/in.tftpd      in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
>2) created /tftpboot
>3) kill -HUP inetd
>It still doesn't start tftp daemon. So i stopped and started nfs.server 
>but no luck. When i try to transfer file to this tftp server i get an error
>"Error code 2: Access violation"
>Any idea why this happnes?
>For syslog server. I just need to install syslog-ng or i can setup 
>without syslog-ng software?
>Any working configuration file for syslog-ng will be of great help.
