The Trivial File Transfer Protocol or TFTP is a very simple protocol used to transfer files.
It has been implemented on top of the User Datagram protocol (UDP) so it may be used to move files between machines on different networks implementing UDP. It is designed to be small and easy to implement. Therefore, it lacks most of the features of a regular FTP. The only thing it can do is read and write files (or mail) from/to a remote server. It cannot list directories, and currently has no provisions for user authentication.
tftp application implements the following IETF standards:
The only feature that not is implemented is the
netascii transfer mode.
It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the Erlang programming language, concepts of OTP, and has a basic understanding of the TFTP protocol.
