PXE boot port issue

I want to boot an IA unix box from network, I am sure I set the DHCP and boot server, but it still failed !

It says : Client MAC Address: 00 18 FE 28 91 82 .....-
PXE-E16: Valid PXE offer not received.
Load of Core LAN Gb A failed: Not Found

I use the nettl command to trace the UDP package, it writes:

From the document, I got that the client port is 68, the server port should be 67, I mean the DHCP server listening port, while in the UDP package, it shows 4109.
Thanks !
