Re: Indy tftp install problem

You beauties! Thanks very much for your help. My Indy is now a turquoise tornado of a Debian box ;)

The crucial advice, over and above that on the web, was to use the tftpd-hpa package.

A short checklist for others ('chupacabras' is the dhcpd and tftpd host, ipaddr :

steve@chupacbras:~ ls -l /tftpboot/
total 4620
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 4716488 2006-06-10 18:23 netboot-boot.img
steve@chupacabras:~ cat /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
subnet netmask {}

host indy {
       hardware ethernet 08:00:69:09:b4:26;
       filename "netboot-boot.img";
steve@chupacabras:~ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range
2048    32767
steve@chupacabras:~ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_no_pmtu_disc

I did not run tftpd via inetd :
root@chupacabras:/home/steve# in.tftpd -l -s /tftpboot

On the Indy, at the maintenance prompt :

I found it unnecessary to 'unsetenv netaddr' or supply arguments to the bootp(): command.

Thanks once again,
