OSCP Update #1

So I renewed my OSCP Lab time for another 90 days, with the goal of spending a lot more time. Well that hasn’t worked out so far, but I’ll keep at it.
Something I learned about the atftp service – the ‘path’ switch doesn’t seem to work, at least not for me. https://linux.die.net/man/8/atftpd according to this page and the OSCP Manual, the following should start the TFTP server with /tftp as the directory.

atftpd –daemon –port 69 /tftp

Anyway, it wasn’t working for me, and I couldn’t figure out why:

until I found a helpful forum post that suggested to check /etc/default/atftpd

I guess that the path flag wasn’t overwriting the default path of /srv/tftp. after changing the path, it worked.
