tftp and launchctl on MacOSX

I needed to upgrade the firmware in a Fortinet Firewall. That's done by pointing the Fortinet at a tftp server that has the new firmware image. Simple enough.. except where do I have a tftp server? Well, not on my main Linux server, because it apparently isn't important enough to install on spec. I could of course go get it, but instead I took a look on my Mac. I honestly didn't expect to find it: I thought they might reserve that for the Server version of Mac OS X, but no, there it was, man page and all.

- Enabling tftp on Mac OS X Leopard with launchctl allows you to use your Mac as a tftp server. -

Router down  
- Network down and then again.. and again.. Normally I don't like to see WiFi in a business environment, and if it must be there, I like to see it locked down very securely: -

Fortinet Firewall Transparent Mode  
- Using Fortinet firewall in transparent mode to pass through external IP to an existing router. -

Fortinet Firewall Virtual IP's  
- Using Fortinet firewall virtual ip's to forward services to intrnal machines. -

Fortinet Routers  
- For those of you who don't know, Fortinet makes a line of firewall routers that optionally include subscription services for antivirus, spam, intrusion protection and more. Those services complement existing antivirus and spam filtering - I still recommend both email server scanning and scanning at the individual PC for best protection. Forttinet is the leading UTM (unified threat management) vendor in the industry and also the fastest growing security company worldwide. -
