I have an DEC 3000 Model 300X. I was trying to
Install NetBSD on it. I ran across this problem :(
I just have upgraded the firmware from
v6.0 to v7.0
everything so far appears to be fine except
that it does not want netboot anymore!
It seems it sends out malformed tftp requests.
the command I used to netboot is
Here's an example of tcpdump for
bootp request before upgrade.
00:53:29.164910 dew.eax.com.45019 > jolt.eax.com.tftp: 27 RRQ
03:20:11.184910 dew.eax.com.45019 > jolt.eax.com.tftp: 32 tftp-#0 [tos 0x1]
and with increased verbosity..
03:27:25.144910 dew.eax.com.45019 > jolt.eax.com.tftp: 32 tftp-#0 [tos
0x1] (ttl 30, id 2447, bad cksum e40a!)
needless to say tftpd does not repond anymore
so such malformed request :(
the bootp was the only way for me to upgrade that box :(
any ideas? suggestions? is that known problem?
