 modified the tftp entry in /etc/inetd.conf to reflect that

 tftp  dgram udp6  wait  root  /usr/sbin/in.tftpd   in.tftpd -s

try using just udp not udp6....

	Done and I kill'ed -HUP inetd so to make that change active.

also, you might have the name the tftpboot.img file based on the IP
address of the client, like C0A800A0 (which is in hex)
also, if it's an older box, you'll need to append .SUN4M to the filename
i.e. ln -s /tftpboot/tftpboot.img /tftpboot/C0A800A0.SUN4M

check out this page:


Since the IP address I gave to the SS1+ is, I guess the filename then becomes A0000011.SUN4M. So, I symbolically linked the file:

# ls -l
total 6196
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 12 Aug 5 21:41 A0000011.SUN4 -> tftpboot.img lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 12 Aug 5 21:43 A0000011.SUN4M -> tftpboot.img
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other    3161568 May 18  2002 tftpboot.img

I am afraid I am still having the very same problem:

ok boot net
Booting from: le(0,0,0)
Got error packet: Error Code 2 Message: Access violationreceive failed
Boot load failed
