I am attempting to create a workflow that allows me to turn on the built in TFTP server in Mac OS, followed (or before) opening a particular finder window and the creating of a file.
The commands need to be;
To launch the daemon run the following commands: sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
sudo launchctl start com.apple.tftpd
Be sure Read/Write/eXecute permissions are set on the tftpboot folder and any files you wish to transfer: sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot
sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot/*
If you’ll be transferring a file TO your TFTP server, the file will technically need to exist on the server beforehand so create it with touch. For example: sudo touch /private/tftpboot/running-config
sudo chmod 777 /private/tftpboot/running-config
I have created (along with the help of a friend) the following workflow. What I would like to do;
1. Is create it so it opens up the finder location first (I can then visibly see the file being created because atm I pre-open the finder window manually). I cannot get this piece to work.
2. Include all of the terminal commands into just on window, with a "sleep x" in between the command lines, and then it auto close that window (I found this, its a preference in terminal rather than a cmd).
3. Close terminal totally. i.e. The entire program.
I can share the created workflow, but you will need to replace the "1" in the commands with your Mac PW. Just trying to workout how to do the upload of a workflow....
Many, many thanks for any help or advice you can offer.
