PXE Boot Service Discover timeout


Hi all,

I have a question on PXE. What is supposed to happen when a client performing a network boot gets the address of a boot server, and sends a Boot Service Discover message, but then receives no response. will the client timeout and loop forever, or will it at some point give up and try booting from the next device in the boot order?

Also, can the boot service intentionally choose to ignore the boot service discover request based on the client's MAC address etc.?

thanks

the default is set that it will check for the bootserver's response once a second for four seconds. After that, it will give up.
