    LTSP Problems with TFTP and PXE boot

    I've set up FC5 and LTSP 4.2 on a test network at home. DHCP is set up and working properly as far as i can tell...atftpd is installed, configured and turned on and the firewall is disabled.

    On boot the PXE boot sequence goes ...

    - DHCP server is found and assigns the client ip of 192.168.62.251, net mask 255.255.255.0, DHCP server ID 192.168.62.254 and gateway id 192.168.62.1.

    Great...no problems there...

    It then tries the tftp server and says "PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout" and then goes back to "TFTP......"

    Anyone any ideas as to what i might be doing wrong?


    Thanks,
    Joe

    Check the tftpserver is contactable and readable from another machine - no firewall issues etc. Check the tftpserver is resolvable in DNS. Check the path is correct in DHCP config.

    Is your DHCP server issueing the required information about the TFTP server? Its IP address?

    It could be that your TFTP service may not be running?

    TFTP is running...as far as i can tell the dhcp.conf file is set up right...but i might be wrong seeing as my knowledge of linux isnt all /that/ great.

    What do i need to have in my dhcp.conf file to make sure that the tftp info is issued right?
