5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

foolean/tftp — version 1.0.2 Jan 10th 2015


This module handles the installation and configuration of the tftp server and client.


node myclientnode {
    class { 'tftp::client': }

node myservernode {
    class { 'tftp::server':
        ensure     => 'present',
        address    => '',
        create     => true,
        listen     => true,

Supported Operating Systems

Primary development is done on Debian and then validated against other operating systems. The current list of supported operating systems is:

* CentOS
* Debian
* Fedora
* RedHat
* OpenSUSE
* Ubuntu


Creating the package (tarball) that can be installed using puppet's module function is simple. Run the following command while in the top of the module directory (e.g. /usr/src/puppet-tftp).

puppet module build .

The resulting tarball will be named foolean-tftp-$VER.tar.gz and can be found in the "pkg" directory within the source tree.

PuppetForge Installation

Foolean TFTP is on PuppetLab's PuppetForge making installation as simple as:

puppet module install foolean/tftp

Manual Installation

When we're installing from a tarball the installation and upgrade process is the same. You'll need to set --modulepath if you're installing the module in a path other than the location defined in puppet.conf.

puppet module install         \
    --force                   \
    --ignore-dependencies     \
    --module-path $MODULEPATH \
