aIrwave as TFTP Dump server for IAP

Just wondering if Airwave can be set as a TFTP dump server for Instant APs or if this must be a standalone device?

a. It should be ok to set up tftp server on amp before 8.2.4.

b. After 8.2.4, we can't set up tftp server with same set up steps, we always get transfer timeout message. 

c. Upgrading amp may remove iptables we created before upgrade. 

d. Here is steps to set up tftp server on amp before 8.2.4.

1.

modify tftp client config file

[root@localhost xinetd.d]# vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

service tftp

{

        socket_type             = dgram

        protocol                = udp

        wait                    = yes

        user                    = root

        server                  = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd

        server_args             = -s /root/dump -c

        disable                 = no

        per_source              = 11

        cps                     = 100 2

        flags                   = IPv4

}

“/root/dump” is tftp root path

 

2.

modify tftp server config file

vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftpd

service tftp

{

  disable        = no                         

  socket_type    = dgram                      

  protocol       = udp                        

  wait           = yes                        

  user           = root                       

  server         = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd        

  server_args    = -s /root/dump -c -T 600000 -v

  per_source     = 11

  cps            = 100 2

  flags          = IPv4

}

 

3.

restart tftp process

[root@localhost tftpboot]# service xinetd restart

Stopping xinetd: [  OK  ]

Starting xinetd: [  OK  ]

 

4.

modify iptables, please backup iptables before changing. 

# sudo /sbin/iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 69 -j ACCEPT

# sudo /sbin/iptables -I INPUT -p udp --sport 69 -j ACCEPT

# sudo /sbin/iptables -I OUTPUT -p udp --sport 69 -j ACCEPT

# sudo /sbin/iptables -I OUTPUT -p udp --dport 69 -j ACCEPT

# sudo /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables save

# sudo service iptables restart
