TFTP That does a fake root?

Post by Jason A. Kat » Tue, 26 Jul 1994 05:14:45

Is there a version of tftpd that will let you setup a fake root, like on a
with tftpd on the a SUN you can specify a directory that will look like /.
I am not able to do that on my Linux box and would like to.

This is what I would like to use in my inetd.conf file:
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot

If anybody has any ideas on this please drop me a note.
