pxe-pdhcp

A implementation of Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) server.

pxe-pdhcp works with DHCP server running on another host. The DHCP server doesn't need to be configured for any PXE specific options. This means that you can set up network boot environment without re-configuring existent DHCP server.

usage: pxe-pdhcp  [-d] [-i interface]
                  [-l listen address] [-t tftp address] [-b broadcast address]
                  <nbp name>

pxe-pdhcp listens on two well-known ports (67/udp and 68/udp) so the root privilege is needed to run.

With -d option, pxe-pdhcp runs on foreground. This option is useful for debugging.

Specify nework interface name ('eth0' for example, on Linux) to -i option.

If the network interface has more than one IP address, use -l, -t, -b options. -i or (-l,-t and -b) option is required.

Finally specify the path of Network Bootstrap Program on the TFTP server to option. It will be 'pxelinux.0' if you are using PXELINUX.
