I agree, but since monowall has so much features (and I am kind of keen 
using monowall at home), I just liked to have such a feature (not 
tomorrow, not next month - just wanted to know if adding a tftp service 
would cause much hassle or not - can I add tftp-server myself on 
monowall using exec.php ??)
Sure, I can add tftp service to a Win or Linux box, hook up some vmwares 
too... but when serving a small application (either sip boot packages 
for sip, or boot packages for a PXE enabled device for booting linux 
would be just that nifty that no normal router can offer)

btw. pfSense doesn't have an tftp package either (I use monowall at 
home, and pfSense at the office).

server package.

see if I can make it work anyway...
