TFTP : UDP / TCP

Hi,

We know that TFTP uses UDP.

But may a TFTP application send some TCP segments ?

So when we want to block traffic to access TFTP server, we should go :

... deny udp ... eq 69

... deny tcp ... eq 69 ?

Thanks,

Navid

TFPT is UDP only.

Nothing prevents an application to use TCP on port 69, but that would not work with TFTP.

IMHO,

If you desire to block TFTP, then why not block both TCP and UDP on port 69. Any TCP connection on well known Port 69 would smell like a bad guy or other mal-intender.

Port 69 used to be a big screen door to hackers years ago, might still have a few listeners floating around today.
