BOOTPd NIS is a really simple BOOTPd server that uses NIS maps to retrieve host information (host name and IP address). Older BOOTP servers (at least those shipped with Solaris) consult /etc/bootptab to get host information. This server enables system administrators to maintain and centralize only one hosts database.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux Solaris|
