Multiple TFTP servers



  • I have a LAN with a number of similar thin clients booting from a TFTP server specified in the pfSense DHCP server settings.

    I would like to add a number of new devices that boot from a different TFTP server.

    Is it possible to group devices so that the different groups are provided with different TFTP server details from the DHCP server?

    Thanks in advance…

    Sure, provided you can predict their MAC addresses.

    You can do it in one of two ways:

    1. Use static mappings for all of the different ones and set the option there

    2. Create a second pool with the setting you want, and use the MAC address allow/deny controls to influence who pulls from a specific pool. Deny them from the main pool and allow them in the second pool.
