To: dnsmasq-discuss at lists.thekelleys.org.uk


For days I have been trying, but I whatever google hints I try the files
get delivered over tftp instead of http.
Any hints on what I am doing wrong will be appreciated.
Kind regards, Dick Burggraaff

linux - slackware current
kernel 3.15.4 64bit, userland 32bit
dnsmasq 2.71
syslinux 6.02

# Determine the IP address of the first interface
IP="$(ifconfig | grep broadcast | head -n1 | awk '{print$2}')"
if [ -z "$IP" ]; then
   echo ">>> FATAL: no IP address for the first network interface"
   exit 1

# Determine the C class subnet
SUBNET="$(echo $IP | cut -d"." -f1-3)"

# Start the DHCP and TFTP servers
killall dnsmasq &>/dev/null
dnsmasq --enable-tftp --tftp-root=$PXEDIR --dhcp-range=$SUBNET.50,proxy \
   --log-dhcp --pxe-prompt="Press F8 for boot menu",0 \
   --pxe-service=x86PC,"Boot from the network",lpxelinux \

echo ">>> The PXE services should be running now"
