Advanced TFTP

atftp is a client/server implementation of the TFTP protocol that implements RFCs 1350, 2090, 2347, 2348, and 2349. The server is multi-threaded and the client presents a friendly interface using libreadline. The current server implementation lacks IPv6 support.

the readme file needed a line or two on how to install atftp. It took me a while to workout that you had to run the "configure" script install atftp. that redhat directory was abit of a mis-direction for us redhat users also.
