Hi

I'm trying to setup an install server for the first time using this guide:

The server is Ubuntu 20.04 and bootps, tftp and rshd are installed from apt and run from inetd

When I run bootp():i/30/ovl1/stand/sash64 on my O2 I get following in the logfile om my linux server

Oct 16 20:46:59 kanhave bootpd[95108]: recvd pkt from IP addr 192.168.1.208

This just repeats until the O2 fails with an error that it couldn't find the boot file.
