Configures the Trivial File Transfer Protocol server tftpd. This cookbook may be used in conjunction with the pxe_dust to create PXE-bootable Ubuntu installs.



The default recipe passes through to the server recipe.


The node will install and use the tftpd application to provide files via tftp. Typically those nodes will be requesting images via PXE and configured from their BIOS as clients, so there is not a client recipe yet.


Nodes using the tftp::server recipe will provide tftp access to whatever files are in their [:tftp][:directory].
