All,


Is the bootp server service required for either:


pppoe accounts that get an ip from the provider


OR


using the router as a dhcp server?


If not, what's it used for and is it pretty much always safe to disable it?


Thanks!

John

All throughout this article, it discusses how bootp is used to assign a client an IP address. My OP was just this question. Do I need to leave it enabled to get an address from an ISP, or do I need to leave it if I'm running a DHCP server on my router?

Sorry for the delay.


Yes you may disable bootp.
