Making DHCP work with BOOTP
The SCO DHCP server, dhcpd,
does not support BOOTP clients directly.
It can be configured
to forward BOOTP requests to the BOOTP
server, in.bootpd, as follows:
manual pages for more information.
Edit the file /etc/inetd.conf on the server. Make a backup copy
of the file in case you need to recover the old version.
Comment out the following entry in /etc/inetd.conf by inserting a
``#'' character at the start of the line:
bootps dgram udp wait root /etc/bootpd bootpd
Uncomment the following entries in /etc/inetd.conf by removing the
``#'' characters from the start of both lines:
Kill and restart inetd to enable the services:
#bootps dgram/i udp wait root /etc/dhcpd dhcpd -b bootps-alt
#bootps-alt dgram udp wait root /etc/bootpd bootpd -S
The first entry configures dhcpd to forward BOOTP
requests to bootpd on port bootps-alt (defined as 950
The second entry configures bootpd to listen in slave mode
on port bootps-alt.
Save the file and exit.
Kill and restart inetd to enable the services.
