This is affecting me on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. My /etc/xinet.d/tftp is http://snipt.org/Bvjb5 and tftpd is version 0.17-18ubuntu2:

$ echo test>test; tftp localhost
tftp> put test
Error code 2: Access violation

$ ls -ld /tftpboot/
drwxrwxrwx 2 nobody nogroup 4096 Dec 6 13:22 /tftpboot/

The work around seems to be creating a blank file first:

$ sudo -u nobody sh <<< "cd /tftpboot; touch test; chmod 777 test"
$ tftp localhost
tftp> put test

Hi

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04, this bug is still there.

Also, the workaround worked, created an empty file and the upload from a Cisco WLC worked.

The bug still exists and the workaround is time consuming when taking backup of images and configuration in the large scale networks
