Trivial File Transfer Protocol


Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a simple protocol that provides basic file transfer function with no user authentication.

TFTP is intended for applications that do not need the sophisticated interactions that File Transfer Protocol (FTP) provides. TFTP, together with Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP), provides support for clients of a System i™ product. They also provide support for other clients that use the TFTP and BOOTP protocols.

You can work with TFTP server properties through iSeries™ Navigator, the graphical user interface (GUI) for the i5/OS® operating system.
