booting over gateways ?

>Yes, you need to specify the gateway in the appropriate bootp or DHCP field.

Bootp-server has it's gateway is
Bootclient has and it is getting this ip address from
via the gateway (daemon bootpgw is started on the gateway so the request / reply
is done)

it shows something like that on the bootclient :

me     relay (gw for  server

but TFTP hangs <sleep, sleep...>

I also looked at /etc/hosts.deny and hosts.allow but there is nothing anormal.
