TFTPd not bind to second lan

I have a HP/UX 11i system running latest version of Ignite. The problem I am having is that TFTPd is working on lan1 but not lan2. I can tftp to the lan1 interface and pass the get test, "get /var/opt/ignite/INDEX". However, if I tftp to lan2 interface and try the same command, it times out.
I can ping, telnet and ssh to lan2 and I can route out the lan2 interface.

Here is the TFTP line from inetd.conf:
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd /opt/ignite /var/opt/ignite

and here is "netstat -an | grep 69"
netstat -an | grep 69
tcp 0 0

Re: TFTPd not bind to second lan

Is your default gateway on lan1? I am not very positive but have nagging doubt that may be the issue. If you can, try changing the default gateway to lan2 and see if that works (and lan1 fails).

work is fun ! (my manager is standing behind me!!)

Re: TFTPd not bind to second lan

You what, it just started working. It must have been a networking issue that I did know about.
I am at such a huge company that I could have missed the notice. I'm upset about this since I worked on this problem for a number of hours.

Thanks for you help though.

Re: TFTPd not bind to second lan

1] small detail tftpd is UDP protokol, that your output from netstat is incorrect.

2] entry in your inetd.conf seems be good

3] How looks your route table on this machine?

4] where is reside your client station ( net. segment ) ?
