Setting Up TFTP

The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a light-weight version of FTP typically used to transfer configuration or boot files between machines, such as routers, in a local environment. TFTP provides an extremely limited set of commands and provides no authentication.

When the TrueNAS system is only storing images and configuration files for network devices, configure and start the TFTP service. Starting the TFTP service opens UDP port 69.


Use the TFTP screen to configure the system for SFTP. See TFTP Screen for information on TFTP screen settings.

See TFTP Screen for more information on TFTP screen settings.
