      bootpquery - send BOOTREQUEST to BOOTP server

      /usr/sbin/bootpquery haddr [htype] [options]

      bootpquery is a diagnostic function used to check the configuration of
      the Internet Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) server, bootpd(1M).  This
      function can only be run by the superuser, since it uses reserved

      bootpquery constructs a boot request with the supplied parameters to
      send to the BOOTP server, and prints the contents of the BOOTP server
      reply (as shown in EXAMPLES, below).  Note that bootpquery formats and
      prints RFC-1048 or CMU-style vendor information included in the

      The BOOTREQUEST packet is broadcast on the BOOTP server port, bootps.
      If a BOOTP server is configured to respond to the request, it returns
      a BOOTREPLY packet on the BOOTP client port, bootpc.  bootpquery can
      only display BOOTREPLY packets when the BOOTP server broadcasts the
      reply on the client port or when the hardware address and IP address
      supplied in the BOOTREQUEST are those of the host on which bootpquery
      is run.

      The following options provide the information for the BOOTREQUEST:

	   haddr   Hardware address of the BOOTP client; used in the
		   BOOTREQUEST.	 A BOOTP server responds if it has
		   configuration information for a host with this link-level

	   htype   Type of address specified as haddr; may be ether or
		   ieee802.  The default address type is ether.

		   Specify the internet address of the BOOTP client to be
		   used in the BOOTREQUEST.  If the BOOTP client does not
		   know its IP address, the BOOTP server supplies it in the
		   BOOTREPLY.  Otherwise, the server returns the BOOTREPLY
		   directly to ipaddr.

		   Specify the name of the BOOTP server to receive
		   BOOTREQUEST.	 When the BOOTP server is known, the
		   BOOTREQUEST is not broadcast.

		   Specify a vendor name to include vendor information in
		   the BOOTREPLAY.  vendor can be specified as rfc1048 or

		   cmu.	 For any other vendor specification, the first four
		   characters of the parameter are used as the vendor magic

	   -f	   Specify that bootpd should broadcast the reply back. This
		   option is only valid for bootpd on the HPUX 10.0 (or
		   later) release(s).

		   Specify a boot file needed by the BOOTP client.  If a
		   boot file is specified in the BOOTREQUEST, the BOOTP
		   server responds only if the server host can make the file
