Distro is OpenSUSE 11, X64
I'm trying to get a box to allow inbound tftp connections. As far as I
can tell, the config is right for xinet.d. Config file is as follows
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = jffnms
group = www
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -s /opt/jffnms/tftpd/
However, every time I try to connect to the tftp service, I get the
following error in my logs
Sep 24 09:18:03 fred in.tftpd: cannot set groups for user nobody
I think this means the service is trying to run as user nobody -
despite the config file telling it to run as another user.
Anyone got any clue why? Or can point out what I've stuffed up?
