     isibootd - TRFS based network boot server

     isibootd [-d tracelevel] [-i interface] [-s directory]

     The isibootd command is a server which supports OMRON LUNA's network boot
     protocol based on the Transparent Remote File System (TRFS) protocol.
     The TRFS protocol uses special Ethernet type packets and works within a
     local network.

     isibootd is a simple TRFS server that only supports client reads for
     booting and exports files in a specified directory.  isibootd accepts
     requests only from clients listed in the /etc/ethers and have valid

     The options are as follows:

     -d tracelevel
                 Run isibootd in debug mode with specified tracelevel.  The
                 tracelevel can be value 1, 2, or 3, and greater tracelevel
                 provides more detailed trace output.  The server will not
                 fork in the debug mode.

     -i interface
                 Specify a network interface to service network boot.  If not
                 specified isibootd searches available network interfaces
                 (excluding loopback) and use the first configured "up" one.

     -s directory
                 Specify a directory containing boot files to be served by
                 isibootd.  If not specified isibootd uses /tftpboot by


     ethers(5), hosts(5), tftpd(8)
