       bootpquery - send BOOTREQUEST to BOOTP server

       haddr [htype] [options]

       is  a diagnostic function used to check the configuration of the Inter‐
       net Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) server, bootpd(1M).  This	 function  can
       only be run by the superuser, since it uses reserved ports.

       constructs  a  boot request with the supplied parameters to send to the
       BOOTP server, and prints the contents of the  BOOTP  server  reply  (as
       shown  in  below).   Note that formats and prints RFC-1048 or CMU-style
       vendor information included in the BOOTREPLY.

       The BOOTREQUEST packet is broadcast on the  BOOTP  server  port,	 If  a
       BOOTP  server  is  configured  to  respond to the request, it returns a
       BOOTREPLY packet on the BOOTP client port, can only  display  BOOTREPLY
       packets	when  the BOOTP server broadcasts the reply on the client port
       or when the hardware address and IP address supplied in the BOOTREQUEST
       are those of the host on which is run.

       The following options provide the information for the BOOTREQUEST:

	      Hardware address of the BOOTP client; used in the BOOTREQUEST.
			     A	BOOTP  server responds if it has configuration
			     information  for  a  host	with  this  link-level

	      Type of address specified as
			     haddr; may be or The default address type is

	      Specify  the  internet address of the BOOTP client to be used in
	      the BOOTREQUEST.
			     If the BOOTP client does not know its IP address,
			     the  BOOTP	 server	 supplies it in the BOOTREPLY.
			     Otherwise,	 the  server  returns  the   BOOTREPLY
			     directly to ipaddr.

	      Specify the name of the BOOTP server to receive BOOTREQUEST.
			     When  the	BOOTP server is known, the BOOTREQUEST
			     is not broadcast.

	      Specify a vendor name  to	 include  vendor  information  in  the
			     vendor  can be specified as or For any other ven‐
			     dor specification, the first four	characters  of
			     the  parameter  are  used	as  the	 vendor	 magic

	      Specify that   should broadcast the reply back.  This option  is
			     only  valid  for  on  the	HPUX  10.0  (or later)

	      Specify a boot file needed by the BOOTP client.
			     If a boot file is specified in  the  BOOTREQUEST,
			     the BOOTP server responds only if the server host
			     can make the file available.
