TFTP and target system booting

Hi all,

I want to boot my remote system by Ethernet network using TFTP server on Host system (QNX 6.2.1B both).
Where can I find any information about this topic? Are there any step-by-step instructions?
Does anybody have experience of network boot on VMWare with two QNX 6.2.1 guest systems (one as a host and the second as target system)?

Should I use google (which search string is the best?)? ;)


First you need to make sure the ethernet card on the remote system supports PXE.
If so, you can use “pxegrub” (search google for that).

The following two should get you started: … le&sid=324

I think the VMWare ethernet simulation supports PXE, so you can do the test boot using VMware.
