Re: Bootp on Cisco router

The router can't be configured to be a bootp server but you can configure it sich that it forwards bootp requests from the client to an actual bootp server using the ip helper-address.

for more information on the "ip helper-address" command, refer to the following URL:

Re: Bootp on Cisco router

Thanks ,but it is not what I am looking for...

I am looking for a bootp configuration that the router will be a bootp server. The image for the terminal server will be on that router flash and when there is a bootp request from the lan interface then the router will serve the request and send the image

file to the terminal server..

Re: Bootp on Cisco router

bootp server can't be configured on Cisco IOS. You can configure it as DHCP server though. The bootp device can probably get an IP address from the DHCP server. If you also configured your router as a TFTP server abd copy the image in the router's flash, you could probably get your bootp client to boot properly.

Hope this helps,
