Cannot Ping Any Machines

I am attempting to use iPXE on a machine of mine to tftp download and boot a Linux kernel. I've built an iPXE usb image and flashed it to a usb drive, and booted into iPXE so far. My problem is that once I configure my network interface with a static IP, I am not able to ping any machines, so I'm not even able to begin downloading the kernel.

I am configuring my static IP like this:

set net0/ip
set net0/netmask
set net0/gateway

and then doing:


(a server, the gateway, myself). In each case, the result is:

0 bytes from <none>: seq=1: Connection timed out (

I get the same results with DHCP configuration.

Am I missing something? Any ideas on this or help with this would be greatly appreciated.
