Client and server implementations of BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol, RFC 951)
are available via anonymous ftp from host safe.stanford.edu, in the files:
Both implementations are in C, the server code for 4.2 BSD, the
client code resides in PROM in our campus gateways/tips (multibus
68000 systems). The client autoconfigures for a number of different
ethernet board manufacturers (3COM, Interlan, Xerox).
The BOOTP protocol is defined such that clients can boot themselves
even when: (1) the client is on an ether segment without a boot server
host. (2) the client doesnt yet know its own IP address.
