SYNOPSIS

bootptest [-f bootfile] [-h] [-m magic_number] server-name [template-file]

DESCRIPTION

The bootptest utility sends BOOTP requests to the host specified as server-name at one-second intervals until either a response is received, or until ten requests have gone unanswered. After a response is received, bootptest will wait one more second listening for additional responses.

OPTIONS

-f bootfile
Fill in the boot file field of the request with bootfile.
-h Use the hardware (Ethernet) address to identify the client. By default, the IP address is copied into the request indicating that this client already knows its IP address.
-m magic_number
Initialize the first word of the vendor options field with magic_number.

A template-file may be specified, in which case bootptest uses the (binary) contents of this file to initialize the options area of the request packet.
