tftp is the "trivial file transfer program" -- which is a very
different beast to your standard FTP server.  TFTP is used for moving
files between machines usually local to one site.  As it doesn't
include any effective authentication mechanism it's not useful for
transferring files outside your trust bounduaries -- use ordinary FTP
for that.

One of the principal uses for TFTP is to support diskless booting.
