       rpld.conf - Remote Program Load (RPL) server configuration file


       The   /etc/rpld.conf  file  contains the configuration information for operation of  rpld,
       the RPL-based network boot server.  It is a text file containing keyword-value  pairs  and

       The  keyword-value  pairs  specify the value to use for parameters used by the RPL server.
       Comments can be entered by starting the line using the # character.  The user can add com-
       ments to the file for customized configurations.

       Alternate  RPL  server configuration files can be specified when running the RPL server by
       supplying a configuration file similar to the default configuration file.

       All keywords are case-sensitive.  Not all keywords must be present.  (However,  note  that
       the  end  keyword  at  the  end of the file must be present.) If a keyword is not present,
       internal defaults, which are the default values described here,	will  be  used.  Keyword-
       value pairs are specified by:

	 keyword = value

       DebugLevel    Specify  the number of error, warning, and information messages to be gener-
		     ated while the RPL server is running.  The valid range is 0-9.  A value of 0
		     means no message at all, while a value of 9 will generate the most messages.
		     The default is 0. Note that it is best to limit the value to 8 or below; use
		     of  level	9 may generate so many debug messages that the performance of the
		     RPL server may be impacted.

       DebugDest     A numeric value specifying where to send the messages to:

		       0 = standard output
		       1 = syslogd
		       2 = log file

		     The default is 2.

       MaxClients    A numeric value specifying the maximum number of simultaneous  network  boot
		     clients to be in service.	A value of -1 means unlimited except where system
		     resources is the limiting factor.	Any positive value will set  a	limit  on
		     the  number  of  clients  to  be  in  service at the same time unless system
		     resource constraints come in before the limit.  The default is -1.

       BackGround    A numeric value indicating whether the RPL server should run  in  the  back-
		     ground  or  not. A 0 means run in the background and a 1 means do not run in
		     the background. The difference is whether the  server  will  relinquish  the
		     controlling terminal or not. The default is 1.

       FrameSize     The default size of data frames to be used to send bootfile data to the net-
		     work boot clients.  This size should not exceed the limits  imposed  by  the
		     underlying  physical  media. For  ethernet/802.3, the maximum physical frame
		     size is 1500 octets.  The default is 1500. Note that the  protocol  overhead
		     of  LLC1  and  RPL  is 32 octets, resulting in a maximum data length of 1468

       LogFile	     The log file to which messages will be sent if DebugDest is set  to  2  (the
		     default).	The default file is  var/spool/rpld.log.

       StartDelay    The initial delay factor to use to control the speed of downloading.  In the
		     default mode of operation, the downloading process does not wait for a posi-
		     tive  acknowledgment from the client before the next data frame is sent.  In
		     the case of a fast server and slow  client,  data	overrun  can  result  and
		     requests  for retransmission will be frequent.  By using a delay factor, the
		     speed of data transfer is controlled to avoid retransmission requests.  Note
		     that  the	unit  of delay is machine dependent and bears no correlation with
		     the actual time delayed.

       DelayGran     Delay granularity.  If the initial delay factor is not suitable and the rate
		     of  downloading is either too fast or too slow, retransmission requests from
		     the clients will be used to adjust the delay factor either upward	(to  slow
		     down  the	data  rate)  or  downward (to speed up the data rate).	The delay
		     granularity is used as the delay delta for adjustment.

       end	     Keyword at the end of the file.  It must be present.
