TFTP: Client does not accept options
I’m having trouble PXE booting any PC
DHCP server 066 = fog2
DHCP server 067 = undionly.kpxe
I can tftp from a windows pc and the local box using the following commands:
tftp fog2 get undionly.kpxe
Transfer successful: 103273 bytes in 1 second(s), 103273 bytes/s
[root@fog2 service]# tftp -v fog2 -c get undionly.kpxe
Connected to fog2.unionky.edu (172.16.30.83), port 69
getting from fog2.unionky.edu:undionly.kpxe to undionly.kpxe [netascii]
Received 103273 bytes in 0.0 seconds [93980984 bit/s]
Permissions on /tftpboot are fog:root 777
Additionally permissions on /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe are also apache:apache (tried fog:apache) 777
I receive an error in /var/log/messages that says:
Feb 3 09:26:41 fog2 xinetd: START: tftp pid=3821 from=x.x.x.x
Feb 3 09:26:41 fog2 in.tftpd: tftp: client does not accept options
On the client end i get Permission denied. I’m not sure what else to do at this point. additionally I had a fog server running .29 that i’ve upgraded in stages all the way to 1.2. It worked great until i upgraded from 1.1.2 to 1.2.
@VijayBomble This thread is extremely old and I have no idea what your particular problem is. based on the message of “on this switch it works, but that one it doesn’t” leads me to think a configuration issue on the switch that’s not working. There’s not anything that I can do to figure out what the problem is.

We also facing this issue if my client workstation connected on Arista L3 switch but if workstation connected with different network switch like HP procure it work properly
You can still have the page be redirected to https (for gui) but getting https on ipxe means having the cert loaded every time.
Ok so that fixed it. is there a way i can have it use https instead of http? I was trying to find this in the config files but i didn’t see anything.
can you make it so it doesn’t?
i believe so…
Seeing as that particular error code appears to be relevant to https, does your site redirect you to an https equivalent?
So here is what i’m getting when it tries to load the boot.php it fails with permission denied
[url]http://[/url][fog IP]/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php…Permission Denied ([url]http://ipxe.org/0216ea3c[/url])
Could not boot: Permission Denied
however i can browse directly to that file and it pulls up fine. permissions on that directory ipxe are 777 and fog:apache
I actually have it set to the IP.
does it work if you set option 66 to the IP instead?
The message “client does not accept options” is actually a normal message that I’ve seen.
The permission denied worries me a little.
