BOOTP is protocol used by devices to request software when restarting. For IP Office, it is used when upgrading the control unit within a system or when the core software within the control unit has been erased. When running, Manager can respond to BOOTP requests and, if it finds a matching BOOTP entry for the system, provide the software file indicated by that entry.

BOOTP entries are not part of an IP Office system's configuration settings; instead they are saved on the Manager PC. Normally Manager automatically creates a BOOTP entry for each system with which it has communicated. However BOOTP entries can be added and edited manually when necessary.

  • File Location
    The location from which Manager provides files in response to BOOTP is its binaries directory. This can be changed using File | Change Working Directory or File | Preferences | Working Directories. This directory is also the directory used by Manager when providing files by TFTP.

  • Disabling BOOTP
    Manager can be disabled from providing BOOTP support for any systems. Select File | Preferences | Edit and untick Enable BOOTP Server.  



  • Enabled: Default = Enabled
    If unticked, BOOTP support for the matching IP Office system from this Manager PC is disabled.

  • MAC Address
    he MAC address of the IP Office system's control unit. The address can be obtained and or verified in a number of ways:

    • When a system's configuration settings are loaded into Manager, it is shown as the Serial Number on the Unit form. On defaulted systems, it is also used as the system name.

    • If the system is requesting software, the MAC address is shown as part of the request in the status bar at the base of the Manager screen.

    • If the system can be pinged, it may be possible to obtain its MAC address using the command arp -a <ip address>.  

  • IP Address
    The IP address of the IP Office system's LAN1.  

  • Filename
    The name of the .bin software file used by that type of control unit. For full details refer to the IP Office Installation Manual. To be transferred to the system this file must exist in the Manager applications Working Directory.

  • Time Offset: Default = 0.
    In addition to performing BOOTP support for IP Office systems the Manager application can also act as a time server (RFC868). This field sets the offset between the time on the PC running Manager and the time sent to the IP Office system in response to its time requests. The field is not used if a specific Time Server IP Address is set through the System form in the IP Office's configuration settings.

    • Manager can be disabled from acting as an Internet Time (RFC868) server. Select File | Preferences | Edit and untick Enable time server.
