Enabling the TFTP Server

Enabling the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) Server allows you to configure network devices and boot computers on a remote network for system imaging or recovery. TFTP does not provide user authentication and you cannot connect to it using a standard FTP client.

  1. Log on to QTS as administrator.
  2. Go to Control Panel > Applications > TFTP Server.
  3. Select Enable TFTP Server.
  4. Specify a UDP port.
    Note:

    The default UDP port is 69. Change this port only if necessary.

  5. Specify the root directory.
  6. Optional: Enable TFTP logging.
    Note:

    This option saves the TFTP logs as files. QNAP recommends viewing the log files using Microsoft Excel or WordPad on Windows, or TextEdit on macOS.

    1. Select Enable TFTP logging.
    2. Specify the folder for saving log files.
    3. Specify the access right.
