[solved] Can dhcpd.conf 'filename' point to a http server?
I am attempting to configure my ISC DHCP Server to load undionly.kpxe over TFTP, using the method described at

if exists user-class and option user-class = "iPXE" {
      filename "http://my.web.server/real_boot_script.php";
  } else {
      filename "undionly.kpxe";

Does this require TFTP? Or can I do this load over HTTP?

I ask, because the the gPXE docs at suggest that I can load gPXE over HTTP. Am I misunderstanding what they are saying?

Quote:Booting from HTTP with gPXE is as simple as replacing the DHCP filename field with an http:// URL. For example, if you currently have /etc/dhcpd.conf containing

next-server my.tftp.server;
filename "/pxe.0";
then you can just copy pxe.0 to your web server and edit /etc/dhcpd.conf to contain

filename "http://my.web.server/pxe.0";

As does

Quote: You should now be able to configure iPXE to boot from the file sccm.ipxe on your web server. For example, if you are using ISC dhcpd then you can edit /etc/dhcpd.conf to contain

filename "http://my.web.server/sccm.ipxe";
