I am trying to use dnsmasq (on Debian) to do BOOTP and TFTP in order to
netboot some Microtik RB112 boards.  But I am having some problems.

I have the board on the other end of a USB ethernet adapter, quite 
separate from the rest of my network to keep things simple.

I have configured the usb ethernet adapter to have an address of

In a local file I have a stripped down dnsmasq.conf which reads:-

# Configuration file for dnsmasq to boot rb100


I then start dnsmasq with the following command:-

sudo dnsmasq -C dnsmasq.rb100 -d

But it never replies to the BOOTP request.

Anyone got any ideas as to how to get this running?
