TFPTd error. Could not bind socket. Address and port are already in use.

What does this mean?

What is TFPTd?

How can I change the ports/What ports need to be changed?

Using DHCP and BINL on Tiny PXE server.

I think you should post your exact current settings and details, exact OS used, etc., otherwise there is no way anyone will be able to help you.

 

TFTP is Trivial FTP a basic service to transfer files:

 

https://en.wikipedia...ansfer_Protocol

 

It normally uses port 69 to initiate, but then will use  other ports (normally negotiated between client and server), generally so-called ephemeral ports:

TFTPd is a TFTP server/client:

TFTPd as in Trivial Transfert Protocol Daemon.

Daemon as in "server" i.e a process listening on a specific port (here udp:69).

 

You have another process/program/application running on your computer which is already listening on udp:69.

A port can only be used by one program at a time.

Find which program is already listening on that port and terminate it.

netstat -anob -p udp on the command line can help you identifiy this process.

 

Once done, you will be able to execute Tiny Pxe Server without this warning.

 

You need the tftpd part of Tiny Pxe Server to run to, as a minimum, server the 1st stage boot loader.
