BOOTPTEST(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  BOOTPTEST(8)

NAME
     bootptest -- send BOOTP queries and print responses

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

DESCRIPTION
     The bootptest utility 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 re-
     ceived, bootptest will wait one more second listening for additional re-
     sponses.

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

     -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	(bi-
     nary) contents of this file to initialize the options area	of the request
     packet.

AUTHORS
     The bootptest utility 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(1)	program.

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