Did you know that OSX has a built-in tftp server? Well it does, here's how you use it:

Type the following in Terminal.app

$ sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist
$ sudo launchctl start com.apple.tftpd

Copy the files you want served up via tftp

All files are served out of /private/tftpboot/

$ sudo scp uboot.bin /private/tftpboot/

Happy Hacking.
