#7384 closed defect (fixed)

PXE fails if ~/.VirtualBox/TFTP/ is missing => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Luiz Angelo Daros de Luca Owned by:
Component: network/NAT Version: VirtualBox 3.2.8

Description (last modified by vasily Levchenko)


I configured my machine to use a external TFTP server:

VBoxManage modifyvm "Diskless NAT" --nattftpserver1 VBoxManage modifyvm "Diskless NAT" --nattftpfile1 /pxelinux.0

However, according to vbox code, it still checks for TFTP directory:


248     /*DHCP Offer specific*/
249     if (   tftp_prefix
250         && RTDirExists(tftp_prefix)
251         && bootp_filename)
252         RTStrPrintf((char*)rbp->bp_file, sizeof(rbp->bp_file), "%s", bootp_filename);

Please, if tftp_server is defined, ignore tftp_prefix.

Indeed this code should be changed in manner to validate folder in case it's built-in server only.
