Correcting myself... went on googling a bit, and went on searching
FreeBSD integration of tftpd...
When I found out about the location of the whereabouts of tftpd, it
seems pfSense already has tftpd in that same location... this might be
intresting, but I don't really want to leave monowall.
Going to put a pfSense in virtualbox, to fool around a bit...

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 ??)

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)

home, and pfSense at the office).

promising... if I can make monowall also serve some small files over
tftp (stored in ram, when booting), it would reduce a computer just
serving these tftp files...

about expanding this functionality, but it would be really cool to be
able to serve small files this way... (i think)

am going to fool around with a free tftp server on a Win2003 server...
to see if I can make it work anyway...
