Hi ppl...

 

been trying to use ProxyDHCP with PXE server with bo success...

(with TinyPXE server as DCHP server all PXE boot works OK)

 

I have a DHCP server in 192.168.1.1/255.255.0.0

 

I start TinyPXE server, checked [ProxyDHCP] option (in 192.168.2.11/255.255.0.0)

 

the PXE client receive the IP/MASK/GATEWAY from the main DHCP...

and DHCP IP is identified as the main DHCP server

but boot does not happen (error is PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout)

 

Try fiddling with several options (66, 67)

?can somebody point me in the right direction...

 

More info about new options in TinePXEServer (43, 60, 252, etc.) will be welcome!!!

Hi Zee,

 

Lets ignore the bottom screen options (67,66, etc).

 

First question, what do you go with such a network config ?

-dhcp in 192.168.1.x/24

-proxydhcp in 192.168.2.x/24

 

Can you screenshot TinyPXEServer and copy paste the log from the text window?

 

Regards,

Erwan

Why did it this way... :juggler:

 

First server 192.168.1.1/16 (255.255.0.0, mask is the same in all network pc's)

I don't have access to it... it's the main DHCP server

 

My PC with TinyPXEServer is 192.168.2.11/16 (255.255.0.0)

 

I want that PXE boot clients in the network get the IP from 192.168.1.1 and TFTP from my PC 192.168.2.11

I launch TinyPXEServer and check the ProxyDHCP option

(all tested with PXE server without ProxyDHCP, and not getting ip from 192.168.1.1)

 

The client PXE gets the IP/MASK/GATEWAY from 192.168.1.1

But fail to get the file via TFTP (192.168.2.11)

 

Probably I'm missing some config thing... :dubbio:

Hi Zee,

 

Can you take a screenshot of TinyPXEServer so that I see how you filled the different fields?

 

Copy paste here as well the text that appears in the upper part of TPS (after a failed boot).

 

Regards,
Erwan
