Centos 7 tftpd will not work with selinux enabled

In Centos 7 tftpd will not work with selinux.  Clients will not be able to connect and this is all you'll see in the log (then nothing more):

Sep 18 14:39:15 localhost xinetd[4327]: START: tftp pid=4331 from=192.168.1.65

On the client/computer side you will see this:

TFTP.

PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

Basically the client is being instantly connected and blocked by selinux.
 

The fix:

1.) disable selinux in /etc/selinux/config

2.) to instantly  (but temporarily disable) type setenforce 0
