OS X Built-in tftp Server

Turned out to be very useful during a recent RMA maintenance window:

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

The default tftp file path is /private/tftpboot. [Original source]

You can stop it with:

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

And, speaking of tftp – there are some interesting projects on GitHub: hooktftp, php-tftpserver and ptftpd.
