Linux tftp listens on all interfaces and IPs by DEFAULT Security Risk Hole Solution

Just edit your tftp file for xinetd like this:

*Change the IP to be the IP of the interface you want to listen on.

To test if your tftp is available on a certain IP range use nc -u yourip 69 to see if you can still connect (/var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog) should show the connection if it is open.
