[SOLVED]Point DHCP to WDS server



  • This should be a simple solution but I can't get it to work.

    I have two subnets connected via IPSEC. 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x

    There is a WDS (windows deployment services) sever hosted at 192.168.1.3 serving PXE clients.

    On the  192.168.2.X pfsense, under DHCP I have network boot options enabled pointing to 192.168.1.3 and the file name Boot\x86\wdsnbp.com

    I can get pxe clients to boot on the 192.168.1.X network however those on the 192.168.2.X network cannot communicate with the WDS server.

    From an XP machine on the 192.168.2.x network, I can issue a "tftp -i 192.168.1.3 GET Boot\x86\wdsnbp.com" and it will download the successfully, so I know it can transverse the VPN successfully.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT

    The issue was the file name. Here are the correct settings
    Server: 192.168.1.3
    Filename: boot\x86\wdsnbp.com\000
