    This is from WeboPedia at http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/T/TFTP.html
    Here is another explanation from http://www.inetdaemon.com/tutorials/internet/tftp/
    I will leave it up to you what you want to do with it. Looks like it may have been left over when your box was set up but only a guess. I have not heard of it being used by cpanel but I may be wrong on that also.

    Thanks for your complete explanation.
    I think that Raccess is giving a false positive. I'm looking for tftp in my box and I can't find anything:
    It's not running, ps doesn't show it
    nmap doesn't show port 69 as opened
    APF doesn't has port 69 opened
    The command "yum list installed" does'nt chow the package as installed
    I've tried to connect via ftp and port 69 and I can't connect (from remote and form local)

    So I am sure this is a false positive.


    Thanks
