BOOTPEF(8)						      System Manager's Manual							BOOTPEF(8)

NAME
bootpef - BOOTP Extension File compiler SYNOPSIS
bootpef [-c chdir] [-d debug-level] [-f config-file] [client-name [...]] DESCRIPTION
bootpef builds the Extension Path files described by RFC 1497 (tag 18). If any client-name arguments are specified, then bootpef compiles the extension files for only those clients. OPTIONS
-c chdir-path Sets the current directory used by bootpef while creating extension files. This is useful when the extension file names are speci- fied as relative pathnames, and bootpef needs to use the same current directory as the TFTP server (typically /tftpboot). -d debug-level Sets the debug-level variable that controls the amount of debugging messages generated. For example, -d4 or -d 4 will set the debugging level to 4. -f config-file Set the name of the config file that specifies the option data to be sent to each client. SEE ALSO

NAME
bootptest - send BOOTP queries and print responses SYNOPSIS
bootptest [ -f bootfile ] [ -h ] [ -m magic_number ] server-name [template-file] DESCRIPTION
bootptest sends BOOTP requests to the host specified as server-name at one-second intervals until either a response is received, or until ten requests have gone unanswered. After a response is received, bootptest will wait one more second listening for additional responses. OPTIONS
-f bootfile Fill in the boot file field of the request with bootfile. -h Use the hardware (Ethernet) address to identify the client. By default, the IP address is copied into the request indicating that this client already knows its IP address. -m magic_number Initialize the first word of the vendor options field with magic_number. A template-file may be specified, in which case bootptest uses the (binary) contents of this file to initialize the options area of the request packet. CREDITS
The bootptest program is a combination of original and derived works. The main program module (bootptest.c) is original work by Gordon W. Ross gwr@mc.com. The packet printing module (print-bootp.c) is a slightly modified version of a file from the BSD tcpdump program. This program includes software developed by the University of California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors. (See the copyright notice in print-bootp.c) SEE ALSO
