Hi all!

Can anybody say what actually "ip bootp server" command do? Documentation doesn't say nothing concrete about it.

All around say that I must disable this service on router for security reasons, but when I do "no ip bootp server" what router functionality I lose?

Thanks for link. I already have seen it and it didn't help me. Description from this page says that we can disable DHCP services with command 'no service dhcp' and we can disable BOOTP services with command 'ip dhcp bootp ignore'. So what is a difference between commands 'ip dhcp bootp ignore' and 'no ip bootp server'? Both disable BOOTP services.

And second question --- what BOOTP services disables 'no ip bootp server'? BOOTP server or BOOTP relay or something else?
