I have been working on this the 6 Days now and still no luck. I have search for hours and hours and tried over 200 different example \ suggestion and configurations(I have made note of every change). I have just about lost all faith in all examples. Maybe this is down to SUSE 7.3.
Please anyone, Do you now how to get suse 7.3 working with remote boot. It should not be this hard!!!
I am trying to boot a dos machine using pxe and receiving the error:
PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout
Suse Linux 7.3
3Com 3C905-tx-m network card with: PXE Rom V2.00
ISC dhcp server V3.0
To get tftp to work not only do you set up the dhcp server to send the right pxe info out (PXE pronounced pixie, I always thought that was such a wimpy name) but you need to set up a tftp server. Sounds like you have the tftp port open on your system based on your inetd.conf but you also need an actual server that answers the tftp requests. I've done it on a windows box where tftp server is built into the PXE software package but in linux you set it up seperatly. I belive you can get most ftp servers configured to handle tftp (bootp) requests but don't know about the specifics. It's probably in the docs you used to set up DHCP to work though.
