Re: bin/6968 (bootp reboots machine when confronted with non existant hostname)
Synopsis: bootp reboots machine when confronted with non existant hostname

(1) have you seen this problem again with a more recent NetBSD?
(2) in order to figure out what might have happened we'll need more
information. There's no plausible way bootpd itself could reboot
a system; best guess is that either it did something bad to one of
the network drivers, or send a bogus address to the other machine
which then sent packets that caused a crash. When you say the
"reboot message", do you mean a message from reboot(8) or shutdown(8),
or just the first kernel messages from a fresh boot?
