Use the tftp and utftp commands for the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) to transfer files to and from hosts.
Because TFTP is a single-file transfer protocol, the tftp and utftp commands do not provide all of the features of the ftp command. If extra security is required for your network, the system manager can disable this command.
Note: The tftp command is not available when your host is operating at a high level of security.
Before attempting a file transfer using the tftp and utftp commands, make sure the following conditions are true:
- If you wish to copy a file from a remote host, you must have read permission for the directory that contains the desired file.
- If you wish to copy a file to a remote host, you must have write permission for the directory in which the file is to be placed.
- When using TCP/IP to copy files, you can use this procedure to copy files from a remote host.
