I do and proxyDHCP is going to be my only option.

I mean, sure, but I'm not even to the point of worrying about PXE booting. I can't get a basic GET from the TFTP server which is the issue. If the TFTP server isn't working, then nothing else down the chain of PXE is going to work. I guess what I'm saying is, I'm not worried about configuring up dhcpProxy and PXE yet since TFTP isn't even operating correctly (and I don't know why).

"Dnsmasq supports PXE "proxy-DHCP", in this case another DHCP server on the network is responsible for allocating IP addresses, and dnsmasq simply provides the information given in --pxe-prompt and --pxe-service to allow netbooting. This mode is enabled using the proxy keyword in --dhcp-range."
I'll assume that you have an other DHCP serverdishing out IP addresses.

If you want Dnsmasq to provide dhcp and PXE booting, you might want to remove 'proxy' from the above range.
