iPXE chain load over squid

RE: iPXE chain load over squid
Thanks for the reply.

I believe I've found a way to leverage iPXE, and remain compliant with our requirement that new servers be built on an isolated network segment.

I'm using the standard technique to assign an initial IP address, then break the infinite loop. The TFTP, DHCP and HTTP server are actually running on the same server, which is dual homed. I've configured the apache http server with mod_proxy, and I'm using a reverse proxy to contact a centralized server that has the syslinux binaries, linux/windows distros and the scripts to install them.

We have a number of locations needing to build servers. Using a central server they can point to, is a big help from a release management perspective.
