tftp and HP service guard

Hello,

Does anyone know how to configure "tftp" to work with a floating IP address.

We have a Solaris box from where we want to transfer some files to an application which is running under HP Service guard on HP-UX 11i v3.
We need to transfer files to a folder where the application is currently running. Therefore, we must ensure that we always transfer file to the floating IP.

tftp works when we set the destination to the node IP address.

[root@]# tftp 172.21.200.122
tftp> put test.txt
Sent 7 bytes in 0.0 seconds
tftp>


tftp times out, whenever we set the destination to the floating IP address.
[root@]# tftp 172.21.200.127
tftp> put test.txt
Transfer timed out.

Additional logs after enabling tftpd -l and inetd -l

Oct 21 10:29:38 actnms02 tftpd[15522]: Available disk space 109436928 bytes
Oct 21 10:29:38 actnms02 tftpd[15522]: receive: WRQ test.txt netascii
Oct 21 10:30:03 actnms02 tftpd[15522]: Transfer timed out

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Re: tftp and HP service guard

Did you use the tftpd option "-s" which allows tftpd to work in a SG cluster?
