BOOTPTEST(8)                                         BOOTPTEST(8)

       bootptest - send BOOTP queries and print responses

       bootptest  [  -f  bootfile  ]  [  -h ] [ -m magic_number ]
       server-name [template-file]

       bootptest sends BOOTP requests to the  host  specified  as
       server-name   at   one-second  intervals  until  either  a
       response is received, or  until  ten  requests  have  gone
       unanswered.   After a response is received, bootptest will
       wait one more second listening for additional responses.

       -f bootfile
              Fill in the boot file field  of  the  request  with

       -h     Use the hardware (Ethernet) address to identify the
              client.  By default, the IP address is copied  into
              the  request  indicating  that  this client already
              knows its IP address.

       -m magic_number
              Initialize the first word  of  the  vendor  options
              field with magic_number.

       A  template-file may be specified, in which case bootptest
       uses the (binary) contents of this file to initialize  the
       options area of the request packet.

       The  bootptest  program  is  a combination of original and
       derived works.  The main program module  (bootptest.c)  is
       original  work by Gordon W. Ross <gwr@mc.com>.  The packet
       printing module (print-bootp.c)  is  a  slightly  modified
       version of a file from the BSD tcpdump program.

       This program includes software developed by the University
       of California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and  its  con-
       tributors.  (See the copyright notice in print-bootp.c)
