Ive got BootP succesfull running on a Linux Redhat 4.1 (kerlen 2.0.30)
server, providing the
IP's for over a 20 networking computer (including a Windows NT Server
But, when I look at the network traffic, I saw that the BootPD was
sending the IP-adresses over
and over again, every second !! I looked at the IP-timeout an my Win 95
system, and yes, after
getting the IP-adress, it immediatly has to get a new one (which
ofcourse is the same !!), because
it has reacht its timeout.
I tried to make the BootPD-server tell the machines that there may be a
timeout of 5 minutes, which
means that all computer will refresh its IP-adress every 5 minutes. But
I dont't know how !!
I have read the HOWTO's, the man-pages, even looked on the Web, but I
still don't know how to
do this. (Remark, the NT-server has a BootPB server where it is
Can anyone tell me if this is poosible, and if, how I make it work ??
Thanks in advance,
