Specify the timeout value (in minutes) that a bootpd or bootpgw process will wait for a BOOTP packet before exiting. If no packets are received for timeout minutes, then the program will exit. A timeout value of zero means "run forever". In standalone mode, this option is forced to zero.
Set the debug-level variable that controls the amount of debugging messages generated. For example, -d-4 or -d 4 will set the debugging level to 4. For compatibility with older versions of bootpd, omitting the numeric parameter (i.e., just -d ) will simply increment the debug level by one.
Set the current directory used by bootpd while checking the existence and size of client boot files. This is useful when client boot files are specified as relative pathnames, and bootpd needs to use the same current directory as the TFTP server (typically /tftpboot). This option is not recognized by bootpgw.
Specify the hostname corresponding to the IP address to listen on. By default, bootpd listens on the IP address corresponding to the machines hostname, as returned by gethostname(3).
Force inetd mode. This option is obsolete, but remains for compatibility with older versions of bootpd.
Force standalone mode. This option is obsolete, but remains for compatibility with older versions of bootpd.
Specify the name of the configuration file from which bootpd loads its database of known clients and client options (bootpd only).
Specify the name of the file that bootpd will dump its internal database into when it receives a SIGUSR1 signal (bootpd only). This option is only recognized if bootpd was compiled with the -DDEBUG flag.
Specify the name of a BOOTP server to which bootpgw will forward all BOOTREQUEST packets it receives ( bootpgw only).
