Hi All,

Are there significant differences in the implementation between the
tftp client in FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE and the client implementation in
pxeboot.bs?

I ask because I have encountered a scenario where pxeboot.bs is
tftp'ing boot files from a PXE server and fails in random spots while
attempting to download boot files to start a 8.2-RELEASE install.
When we run the same sequence of tftp gets in a running 8.2-RELEASE
instance continuously, we never received a single failure in a solid
hour of attempts.

Take care
