bootpef - BOOTP Extension File compiler

BOOTPEF(8) System Manager's Manual BOOTPEF(8)

NAME

bootpef - BOOTP Extension File compiler

SYNOPSIS

bootpef [ -c chdir ] [ -d debug-level ] [-f config-file ] [ client-name [...]]

DESCRIPTION

bootpef builds the Extension Path files described by RFC 1497 (tag 18). If any client-name arguments are specified, then bootpef compiles the extension files for only those clients.

OPTIONS

-c chdir-path
Sets the current directory used by bootpef while creating extension files. This is useful when the extension file names are specified as relative pathnames, and bootpef needs to use the same current directory as the TFTP server (typically /tftpboot).
-d debug-level
Sets the debug-level variable that controls the amount of debugging messages generated. For example, -d4 or -d 4 will set the debugging level to 4.
-f config-file
Set the name of the config file that specifies the option data to be sent to each client.
