TFTP Open Timeout on New Fog Install
iptables -L -n -vto see if the local firewall on the Linux system is enabled. Take a picture and post here.
Just for good measure, I tore out the VirtualBox solution and stood FOG up on an old desktop. Same error.
I even ran tftp -i <ip> get udionly.kpxe
connect request failed
Same problem with legacy BIOS and UEFI. I can ping the FOG server from my client machine, but FOG can’t ping client.
VirtualBox is running on a Windows 10 PC and is setup in Bridge mode. I had some networking issues due to an aggressive web filter on our network, but other than that, this has been functioning normally.
Please disregard the fact that I couldn’t ping anything from the server. I can’t ping them from other machines from the host either. So I’m not pursuing that path right now.
I did view the TFTP troubleshooting page and I checked everything there with no success.
@fhrivers Take a look at this wiki article:
As well I am wondering how you setup the networking of the VirtualBox VM. Best if you can take a picture of the network settings in VirtualBox and post here.
Okay, sorry about the spam as I’m troubleshooting in parallel with providing you with more information. I’m running Fog in a CentOS VM running in Virtualbox which is running on a Windows 10 host. So I may be running into Windows firewall issues. I cannot ping external machines on the network from CentOS.
@Sebastian-Roth Netstat returns this:
udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:69 0.0.0.0:* 3332/xinetd
@george1421 3 years and one company! LOL. Also did that in a VMWare environment. Lots of differences this time!
Option 67 is set to undionly.kpxe like it’s supposed to
Not for UEFI booting machines though. If your machines are UEFI booting then you need to use ipxe.efi. Details on this see here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=BIOS_and_UEFI_Co-Existence
I guess we need more details to be able to help:
- Which Linux OS do you use? CentOS? Debian? Ubuntu? Did you disable SELinux and the firewall?
- Is TFTP running? Command to check:
netstat -antup | grep ":69"or
ss -antul | grep ":69"(if netstat is not installed)
- Do you have other machines (beside Lenovo X1 Carbon and my VMWare Workstation VM which can both be tricky) that do properly PXE boot on the new FOG server?
- Take a picture of the actual TFTP error on screen an post here!
- Have you read the troubleshooting guide in our wiki? https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tftp_timeout… (please follow the tests to see if you can manually download the iPXE binary file)
@fhrivers So pxe booting worked OK with 0.3x version of fog and you only updated (installed) 1.5.5 and have pxe booting issues? Was there any gap in time between you using fog 0.3x and 1.5.5?
