     bootptest — send BOOTP queries and print responses

     bootptest [-f bootfile] [-h] [-m magic_number] server-name

     The bootptest utility sends BOOTP requests to the host specified as
     server-name at one-second intervals until either a response is received,
     or until ten requests have gone unanswered.  After a response is
     received, bootptest will wait one more second listening for additional

     -f bootfile
	     Fill in the boot file field of the request with bootfile.

     -h	     Use the hardware (Ethernet) address to identify the client.  By
	     default, the IP address is copied into the request indicating
	     that this client already knows its IP address.

     -m magic_number
	     Initialize the first word of the vendor options field with

     The bootptest utility is a combination of original and derived works.
     The main program module (bootptest.c) is original work by Gordon W. Ross
     ⟨⟩.  The packet printing module (print-bootp.c) is a slightly
     modified version of a file from the BSD tcpdump(1) program.

     This program includes software developed by the University of California,
     Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors.	 (See the copyright
     notice in print-bootp.c.)
