IPTables rules for TFTP

To open the TFTP port in IPTables, we will run the rule:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 69 -j ACCEPT

To open the TFTP port for a specific network only, we will run the rule:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp -s 192.168.1.0/24 --dport 69 -j ACCEPT

To remove a rule, we’ll use the same command, replacing -A with -D, for example:

sudo iptables -D INPUT -p udp -s 192.168.1.0/24 --dport 69 -j ACCEPT

To view the list of rules, use the command:

sudo iptables -nvL
