Solaris jumpstart install server

I am attempting to install Solaris 10, on a SPARC platform, from a Solaris install server running under Oracle Virtual Box (x86 platform)
solarisbox1 is server with IP
solarisbox2 is client with IP

Snoop gives me the following ..

solarisbox1 -> (broadcast) ARP C who is, solarisbox1?
solarisbox2 -> BROADCAST TFTP read "" (octet)
solarisbox1 -> solarisbox2 TFTP error: access violation

TFTPboot contains 4 files including 0A01013C.sun4u

any help would be appreciated
