I think Tiny PXE Server package is not yet updated at the reboot.pro download location and also not at your website or am I wrong  :unsure:

 

I think Tiny PXE Server package is not available at your GitHub site

Strange (something i must be doing wrong when refreshing my uploads).

I have refreshed the download section : should be good to go.

 

Files are hosted on my private hosting here and mirrored on github here.

 

I have also updated the first page of this thread to include a link to the download section.

pxesrv.zip from GitHub is OK and is the New version.

pxesrv.zip from your website and from reboot.pro is still the old version ....

minor update.

 

-ability to use https web sites as root (http was already supported) -

example : root=https://raw.githubus...rver/main/files

-ability to use js files as server side scripts (next to php, py, bvs)

-added vbs and php dynamic menus (drop a iso/wim file in the web server and use it straight away without adapting the ipxe files)

 

Example of an auto/dynamic generated menu listing all iso's.

Not sure what you mean.

Could it be a cache issue on your side?

I do have this cache issue in chrome and when this happens, i try my link from another browser.

 

For me it as easy/simple as to upload to my ftp/http server and to github.

 

From there, all web sites pointing to one or the other (like reboot.pro) will/should be OK.

 

My http/ftp server  ( http://erwan.labalec...rver/pxesrv.zip )

The download links for Tiny PXE Server as given above do not work, since link is ending wrongly with ).

 

Tiny PXE Server from your website is 4632 kB and is Old and wrong

Tiny PXE Server from your GitHub  is 5158 kB and is New and OK

 

It is really very strange.

When I use other Windows 10 Or Win10XPE then the download from your website corresponds well to the Tiny PXE Server from GitHub.

I am using Miccrosoft Edge as browser and must see if I can find a way to refresh ....

Try yourself to download from your website Tiny PXE Server

I fixed the links, thanks !

 

I googled a bit and it looks like OVH (my hosting provider) may be the faulty part here.

There is some sort of caching which interferes with fresh uploads.

Some guys out there report that they have to upload the file a dozen times before ovh servers are finally serving the latest version : does not look very square to me :(

If issue remain, I may use github as the unique serving point.

 

The pxesrv.zip you are getting (4632kb) is the old one (before this week).

I am getting a zip file from march 1st...

Latest one should be the one from march 2nd.

And to add some more "strangeness" to this, I am getting different behaviors in different browsers  :wacko:

 

Ultimately, files should be synced everywhere pretty soon .

Clear the Edge Download History solved the issue and Tiny PXE Server from your website is now OK and new version.

 

Ctrl + Shift + Delete in Edge gives dialogue to remove download history

I indeed suspect a cache issue somewhere either on the server side (ovh seems to have issues to quickly replicate datas between their servers) and/or on the client side.

 

Glad this is finally sorted out for you :)

 

As always, many thanks for your constructive feedback!

:whistling: ... and - as often happens - something that could have been avoided  :whistling: :

Something else to remind for our conversations on the public park bench ;)

Ah Wonko, long time no speak :)

The public park bench : i'd love to see that happen!

And preferably at your place where the weather (and food, and lots of other things...) is much better (to my taste).

And we dont need to wait to be old for this.

 

Versionning is / has always been my weak point.

And actually I am thinking to use github for this as it does it all for you : versionning, archiving, keeping tracks of changes (when open source), etc.

 

In the meantime, lets blame "caching" :)

 

Take care,

Erwan
