PXE boot server config question


Hi
Im using RHEL 5.4 on VMware Fusion and testing a PXE boot server
Hopefully a simple question that I could not find an answer to on the inet
when trying to enter the subnet i wanted to serve i am asked for an octet aligned subnet
i tried the usual 192.168.88.0/24 and 192.168.88.0 255.255.255.0
but to no avail
i bet its bloody obvious
thanks

It sounds like you are using some kind of GUI tool to configure your server. Most people probably don't know about the GUI, and are simply familiar with the format of the resulting config file. If the config file is /etc/dhcpd.conf, then perhaps the format you seek would be
Code:
subnet 192.168.88.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

}
If it is some other component, you will probably have to figure out which file requires the accordant format. If that doesn't reveal the answer to you in itself, then ask back here, citing the filename you need to configure.
