    PXE boot woes under FOG 1.0.1

    Good afternoon folks,

    I've trying to setup a fog 1.0.1 server on our network, but seem to be having a few problems with the PXE boot (specifically around DHCP options).

    If I boot using the DHCP server build into the FOG box, everything works correctly, however if I try to use our company DHCP server, coupled with the DNSMASQ proxy, I can't seem to get anywhere - it comes up with cannot start download: operation not supported

    I've attached my DHCPd config file which works, and my LTSP.conf file for DNSMASQ which doesn't work. Can anyone please point me in the right direction whilst I've still got hair left to pull out.

    DHCP config
    # DHCP Server Configuration file.
    # see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample
    # This file was created by FOG
    use-host-decl-names on;
    ddns-update-style interim;
    ignore client-updates;

    subnet netmask {
    option subnet-mask;
    range dynamic-bootp;
    default-lease-time 21600;
    max-lease-time 43200;
    option domain-name-servers;
    option routers;
    filename "undionly.kpxe";

    LTSP DNSMASQ config
    # Don't function as a DNS server:
    # Log lots of extra information about DHCP transactions.

    # Set the root directory for files available via FTP.

    # The boot filename, Server name, Server Ip Address

    # Disable re-use of the DHCP servername and filename fields as extra
    # option space. That's to avoid confusing some old or broken DHCP clients.

    # PXE menu. The first part is the text displayed to the user. The second is the timeout, in seconds.
    pxe-prompt="Press F8 for boot menu", 3

    # The known types are x86PC, PC98, IA64_EFI, Alpha, Arc_x86,
    # Intel_Lean_Client, IA32_EFI, BC_EFI, Xscale_EFI and X86-64_EFI
    # This option is first and will be the default if there is no input from the user.
    pxe-service=X86PC, "Boot from network", undionly

    # This range(s) is for the public interface, where dnsmasq functions
    # as a proxy DHCP server providing boot information but no IP leases.
    # Any ip in the subnet will do, so you may just put your server NIC ip here.
    # Since dnsmasq is not providing true DHCP services, you do not want it
    # handing out IP addresses. Just put your servers IP address for the interface
    # that is connected to the network on which the FOG clients exist.
    # If this setting is incorrect, the dnsmasq may not start, rendering
    # your proxyDHCP ineffective.

    Thanks in advance everyone!
