My guess is your bootpd / tftpd does not work properly.  Just as it might
help, here is my configuration:


tftpd is started from inetd, inetd.conf line is:
tftp    dgram   udp     wait    nobody  /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.tftpd /tftpboot

$ tftp localhost
tftp> get kernel-puffin
Received 1039957 bytes in 1.2 seconds
tftp> get kernel-herring
Received 1039957 bytes in 1.1 seconds

# bootpd -d9
bootpd: info(6):   bootptab mtime: Thu Jul  8 16:27:42 1999
bootpd: info(6):   reading "/etc/bootptab"
bootpd: info(6):   read 2 entries (2 hosts) from "/etc/bootptab"
bootpd: info(6):   recvd pkt from IP addr

bootpd: info(6):   sending reply (with RFC1048 options)
bootpd: info(6):   setarp - 00:10:83:03:29:EE

I have no idea how to translate all that to HP/UX.

appropriate permissions on this ? is tftpd started with / as root (not
/tftpboot as usual) ?
