NetBSD routeur.home 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (ROUTEUR) #6: Thu Dec  9 07:23:55 CET 2004     admin@routeur.home:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ROUTEUR i386

I'm trying to netboot Windows Xp embedded via DHCP(BOOTP/PXE) / TFTP.

1/ I've upgraded the tftpd daemon to the last one via CVS sources. (with a little patch to make it compile on 1.5.2) cause the 1.5.2 one was too old to support some needed tftp's extensions.

2/ tftpd start serving some files:, ntldr,, boot.ini, the big filesystem, ..., then the transfert hang at 3/4 with a timout from client.

3/ It seem that even the firsts files are served ok, something from there is not acknowledged correctly making the transfert hang later.

4/ I noticed many "TFTP abort"
By trying to netboot Windows Xp embedded.
As a temporary fix i'm using Tftpd32, a shareware on a M$ system...
