I searched but did not find an existing request for tftpd so please pardon me if this is a redundant request.

In my job, I regularly work with Cisco and other network equipment which uses TFTP for code updates and configuration backup/restore. I have been considering the idea of carrying a Raspberry Pi or Pi Zero in my toolkit configured to provide TFTP, FTP, SFTP, and other often-used services. I really like the slim design of DietPi and have created a VM of this “toolkit” machine with SSH, HTTP, and FTP all confirmed working. Not finding TFTP in the optimized software list, I attempted to install and configure tftpd using various instructions from the internet (which really come down to “apt-get install xinetd tftpd tftp” and then configure) but am having no success when attempting to get or put files.

Would it be possible to add tftpd to the dietpi-software menu for ease of installation?

While pondering that idea, if anyone can point me in the right direction to troubleshoot tftpd (log files, etc), I would be very grateful.


Many thanks for your request. Please consider to add it to:

I never heard of TFTP so far. Will have a look when I can.
