Hello, it's the netboot guy again. I've managed to arse around, and
finally get it to the point where it behaves a bit better. My DS3100
will now get up to the point where it requests a file via tftp, and
eventually stops. Tcpdump output is as follows:

01:05:06.557890 cupid.15459 > stolichnaya.tftp:  28 RRQ
01:05:06.559703 stolichnaya.32866 > cupid.15459:  udp 27 (DF)

server is called stolichnaya, the DS3100 is cupid. this two-line phrase
above is repeated until the DS gives up. What have I done wrong on the
tftp server to cause a "udp 27" and not lots of nice data flowing and
ACKs? Has anyone been here before?

Thankyou for your time
