Re: Problem with Netboot and MicroVax trying to install NetBSD

At the chevron prompt I'm typing "b esa0" and in the /tftpboot/mop directory is the file 08002b1d0ac8.SYS

What command do you give on the VAX, and the <ethernet address>.SYS... Which address is that? It should be the VAXen address, and with lowercase letters.

Based on Henry Bent's suggestion, I got boot.mop from the 1.5
installation, renamed it to my ether address.SYS, ran mopd -a -d and
checking /var/log/messages I get:
mopd[831]: 8:0:2b:1d:a:c8 (1) Do you have 08002b1d0ac8? (Yes)
over and over. On the Vax I still get ?54 Retry. So it looks like the
Vax is asking for the right file, and it seems that mopd is
acknowledging the request, but on the console I keep getting:
MOP DL 802.3 8:0:2b:1d:a:c8 > ab:0:0:1:0:0 len 47 code 08 RPR
MOP DL 802.3 0:c:29:a9:4:72 > 8:0:2b:1d:a:c8 len 9 code 03 ASV
MOP DL 8:0:2b:1d:a:c8 > ab:0:0:1:0:0 len 39 code 08 RPR
MOP DL 0:c:29:a9:4:72 > 8:0:2b:1d:a:c8 len 1 code 03 ASV
again and again. 00:0c:29:a9:04:72 is the ether address of my i386
NetBSD box I'm trying to serve from.
