Welcome to FreeSoftwareServers Confluence Wiki

A very basic file tree will look like this

#tftp root



First your computer gets the pxelinux.0 file which instructs it to get the default file which then points to the OS folder with the files to be loaded.

A very basic DNSMasq config (without the DNS + DHCP) with just the relevant TFTP part would look like this:



A very basic default file:

 DEFAULT pmagic
# Boot the entire ISO over PXE.
LABEL pmagic
LINUX pmagic/memdisk
INITRD pmagic/pmagic.iso


A good start is to install atftp and configure DNSMasq to serve pxelinux.0 then try to download pxelinux.0 inside tmp. This confirms your machines can get pxelinux.0

 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y atftp && cd /tmp && echo 'get pxelinux.0' | atftp localhost
