Bootp Support

Post by Vinay Ravuri » Wed Jan 22, 2003 5:53 pm

Hi,

I am interested in receving bootp requests from a client and responding
with bootp reply programtically. Does QNX provide a call out function that
allows me to trap bootp request and handle them myself?

Also, What does the stack to with vendor specific information in the
bootp packet?

The processes that handle BOOTP requests are 'bootpd' and depending on
your Momentics version 'dhcpd'. These are just TCP/IP applications. You
can start your own application to bind to the known port and handle
these messages yourself. If using the applications, they do not provide
some kind of raw interface to pass the BOOTP requests to an external
process. They do provide options and configuration that allow you to
control how these processes respond. The TCP/IP stack does not do
anything with the vendor specific information as it is the applications
job to handle these messages.
