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 inter-
       vals 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 pro-
       gram.

       This program includes software developed by the University of California, Lawrence  Berke-
       ley Laboratory and its contributors.  (See the copyright notice in print-bootp.c)
