Using the macOS builtin tftp server”

Should you ever need a tftp server on your macOS device, you can use the builtin tftp server:

sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
sudo launchctl start com.apple.tftpd

The tftp root folder is /private/tftproot

The file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist holds the configuration.

Stopping the tftp server is as easy as:

sudo launchctl unload -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
