set up BOOTP/RARP


I know bootp is seriously obsolete, but I have a digi etherlite 160 serial concentrator that relies on bootp or rarp to get an IP address. I am hoping to do this using slackware 12.2, I have tried a few things I read online. I will paste configuration files:

/etc/bootptab:
Code:
default1:\
    :hd=/usr/boot:bf=null:\
    :ds=192.186.55.1:\
    :ns=192.168.55.1:\
    :ts=192.168.55.1:\
    :sm=255.255.255.0:gw=192.168.55.1:\
    :hn:vm=auto:to=-18000:\


digi:ht=ethernet:ha=00A0E7235686:ip=192.168.55.122:tc=default1:
/etc/ethers:
Code:
00:a0:e7:23:56:86 digi
/etc/hosts
Code:
192.168.55.122 digi
I run bootpd and rarpd and plug in the concentrator, i am unable to ping 192.168.55.122. Does anybody know how to set up a bootp server to give an ip address to a terminal server? Thanks

I use bootp for PXE booting...

The \ after the -18000 looks wrong but I guess it depends on your bootp server.

What does the bootp log file say? Is it getting a request? Does it reply?
