I know this isn't the purpose of TFTP, but I'm working in an environment where a lot of different types of devices pull provisioning info from a TFTP server. What I'm developing is a provisioning system that tracks and maintains device configurations, and I would like to have the requested files generated on the fly, much like you could do with any web application.

Yes some of these devices can support HTTP for provisioning, but not all of them do, and we want things to be consistent.

Are there any TFTP daemons that can provide something analogous to CGI?
