NAME

     bootptab -- Internet Bootstrap Protocol server database


DESCRIPTION

     The file /etc/bootptab contains a list of host entries used by bootpd
     (see bootpd(8)) to associate a hardware address with a particular IP
     address.

     The bootptab file contains two sections.   The two sections are separated
     by a single line containing just "%%".  The first section is ignored.
     The second section contains host entries, one host per line.  The format
     of the line is:
     hostname     hwtype     hwaddr     ipaddr     bootfile


EXAMPLES

     Here is an example /etc/bootptab:
