    I'm trying to boot a PC thru iSCSI via gPXE and I need to use the DHCP of Tomato instead of a different DHCP server.

    The iSCSI Target IP and TFTP server

    On a Microsoft DHCP server, this is the procedure that is needed for the client to boot over the network.

    So I just need the same process but it should be implemented using the DHCP of Tomato, specifically thru the DNSMasq custom script.

    I hope someone can help me shed light over this. TIA

    In case you're using pxelinux, if not change accordingly

    I'm using dhcp-boot=gpxe.pxe,, but doesn't work.

    It loads the gpxe but doesn't boot to the OS.

    If the client gets an IP address and loads the file, your problem is now entirely related to the client and what you're sending to it.

    I use syslinux and had plenty of problem sending full .iso to the client. Eventually solved downgrading syslinux to an older version
