Any one can suggest a TFTP server to be installed in Fedora (same machine that Asterisk is installed) to be used for Cisco IP Phones to download the required firmware and configuration files.
Thanks for the help in advance.

The one in the repos should be fine. I’m not Fedora (I’m Mandriva), but
both are RPM based. Try:
yum install tftp-server. The one that comes with Mandriva works fine
with our Cisco 7940/7960 phones.

I suggest you learn the configuration. You don’t want a TFTP server
facing the world. Restrict TFTP to your LAN interface.
Outside phones should certainly be using FTP.
I don’t even bother with TFTP since it is not secure. I use FTP in
A savvy hacker can download your TFTP configuration files and use your
system for toll fraud or any other nefarious purpose.
Better safe than sorry.
Thanks alot for the kindly help.
I installed the tftp-server, and I configured it.
How can I see the the files are now loaded? Normally in the windows, I can see that a request reached to the TFTP server and the files now are loaded (upload or download)?
From the other side, about the res_phoneprov_and_TFTP, actually I do not see it that it is used to download the firmware and configuration files, but I see it is used for provisioning, correct?
The tftp daemon should log the transfers via syslogd. For example:
Jun 12 12:03:23 dt in.tftpd: RRQ from 192.168.0.19 filename /spa841.cfg
I start tftp via xinetd and the configuration looks like this:
cps = 100 2
bind = 192.168.0.1
disable = no
flags = IPv4
per_source = 11
protocol = udp
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -c -s /tftpboot -v -v -v -v -v -v
socket_type = dgram
user = root
wait = yes

You should really be asking on the Fedora lists or even Google, this
is about TFTP on Fedora, not anything to do with Asterisk.
Also, check /var/log/messages on your server. Are there any tftp messages there?
Also run tftpd with the “-v” flag (multiple times — try “man tftpd”).
