Creating WAN boot Server help

I have a Jumpstart server. It does not have Apache on there. I have not found a step by step guide on how to install a WAN boot server. I already have all my custom files from my Jumpstart Server and the flash as well. I just want to test it over the WAN and see if I can get it to work.

I downloaded a document but it does not say what i need for a WAN boot. I have the WANBOOT from the CD but I think I need Apache as well to provide secure https

ickey - install a client key for WAN boot SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/inet/wanboot/ickey [-d] [-o type=3des] /usr/lib/inet/wanboot/ickey [-d] [-o type=aes] /usr/lib/inet/wanboot/ickey [-d] [-o type=sha1] DESCRIPTION
The ickey command is used to install WAN boot keys on a running UNIX system so that they can be used the next time the system is installed. You can store three different types of keys: 3DES and AES for encryption and an HMAC SHA-1 key for hashed verification. ickey reads the key from standard input using getpassphrase(3C) so that it does not appear on the command line. When installing keys on a remote system, you must take proper precautions to ensure that any keying materials are kept confidential. At a minimum, use ssh(1) to pre- vent interception of data in transit. Keys are expected to be presented as strings of hexadecimal digits; they can (but need not) be preceeded by a 0x or 0X. The ickey command has a single option, described below. An argument of the type -o type=keytype is required. OPTIONS
The ickey command the following option. -d Delete the key specified by the keytype argument. EXIT STATUS
On success, ickey exits with status 0; if a problem occurs, a diagnostic message is printed and ickey exits with non-zero status. FILES
