Windows having problems parsing iBFT from recent iPXE versions?

Hi,

I am having problems getting a Windows 2012 iSCSI installation to work 
with recent iPXE versions,
while it does work with an older iPXE version.

Test setup:

- Virtualbox VM as "server to be provisioned"
- Simple Synology NAS device as iSCSI target
- Latest wimboot
- iPXE script that looks like this:

==
set keep-san 1
set skip-san-boot 1
sanboot 
iscsi:192.168.178.99::3260::iqn.2000-01.com.synology:DiskStation.diskless

Password parsing

Hi everyone,

I recently discovered that a '?' in your password will cause the
password to be displayed in plain text during imgfetch. After looking
into core/uri.c what was causing this I think the same is true for '#'
and ' <at> '. The parsing simply assumes these characters server their usual
purpose when occurring in an URI.

I tried working around that issue, but I am undecided how to do this
correctly. First thing that comes to mind is starting at the end of the
string searching backwards. Are there any drawbacks on this? If not I
would implement it and send the patch.

Cheers,
Chris

ipxe-devel@...

Hello,

My name is Duane, and wanted to inquire about the Rom-o-Matic.eu website, which seems not to be working any more.  The site only provides the following information (see below).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I have used the website before, to create many customized ipxe boot files.  The website states about not having content yet, which is odd, since there was content prior, which allowed me to create my boot files.

Is the website being upgraded?  Is the service no longer being provided? 

I also have checked out the ipxe.org website, which states to use Rom-o-Matic.eu website, and no mention about any problem with the site.

Also, Robin Smidsrød., states in a recent ( ipxe.org ) forum reply (dated 9-21-2014) to use Rom-o-Matic.eu. 

Any help or information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

iSCSI protocol transition

Information: Supported iSCSI Target

I just wanted to let the website admins know of another known working iSCSI target. I have been using Starwind Virtual SAN for several years now with no problems at all. This is a commercial application, but can be used for free with limitations. You can find this application here: http://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwind-virtual-san/ .

This is purely informational, in case you want to update your wiki.

wimboot problem

Hello,

 

I have to start winpe-images over pxelinux + wimboot.

On a BIOS-compatible system it works fine. But now I have to boot a MS surface 3 which only has UEFI.

Here it works till this point:

 

Loading …wimboot … ok

Encapsulating …\bootmgr … ok

Encapsulating …\bcd … ok

Encapsulating …\boot.sdi … ok

Encapsulating  …\boot.wim …

 

Here it hangs and nothing happens. L

I use the latest wimboot (2.3.0) and the newest pxelinux version (6.3).

Unfortunately I didn’t found any hints if I have to change any options in the pxelinux.cfg\default or I have to change some files.

For instance I tried to use bootmgr.efi instead of bootmgr but that didn’t change anything.

I would be very glad if you can give me some help.

 

Best regards

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Push request : Adapt Ping command for scripting

hello,

I added two new options to the ping command to allow the execution of
the command from a script.

     the counter parameter indicates the number of response to show. If
no argument then control the infinite loop

    the quiet parameter to hide messages on the screen setting.

It is thus possible to script the ping command.
example:
        ping -c 1 -q 10.1.1.1 && echo echo || Link UP DOWN link

example :
	ping 1.1.1.1 (request infinite loop)
	ping -c 2 1.1.1.1 (request two ping echo)
	ping -c 2 -q 1.1.1.1 (no echo on display)

Is it possible to add these changes to the original code ?

Attachment patch file for GIT.

Bye

Re: colored serial output - INT 0x10

Yes; iPXE can output arbitrary ANSI escape sequences which can include 
colour change sequences.  For the BIOS (or VESA framebuffer) console, 
these are interpreted by iPXE; for the serial console they are sent 
verbatim to be interpreted by the terminal software on the other end of 
the link.

> Which INT 10 services do iPXE use for BIOS Screen Control?

All code calling INT 10 should be in 
arch/i386/firmware/pcbios/bios_console.c.  We seem to use:

   INT 10,02 : ANSI CUP
   INT 10,06 : ANSI ED
   INT 10,01 : ANSI DECTCEM

and for writing characters to the screen:

   INT 10,08 : read current attribute
   INT 10,09 : set current attribute
   INT 10,0e : print character

IPv4 TFTP performance issue

Hi,

 

I’m updating my driver with the latest iPXE patches.

The base code from which I started to add my changes is this commit:

commit 0cc2f42f467e27945070a4036a6a1f928bc7018f

Author: Michael Brown <mcb30 <at> ipxe.org>

Date:   Fri Aug 29 13:10:18 2014 +0100

    [efi] Wrap any images loaded by our wrapped image

 

 

I’m trying to boot linux OS over IPv4 TFTP but the process is significantly slower than when using my previous driver. I opened wireshark on the DHCP/PXE server, and I noticed this behavior in the image.

Do you have any idea what this issue might be?

Any clue will be very helpful.

 

I also found a work-around patch for this issue.

The block size with this patch is the same 1456

iMAC BMC57766 tg3 driver issues

Hi,

We have iMACs with Broadcom BCM57766 cards [14e4-1686] unsupported (no entry in tg3.c table). I added a entry in tg3.c table and re-compile ipxe.
Link status tests passed but "dhcp" command reports Error 0x040ee119.
Then I tried to configure iMAC network adapter manually:

ipxe>set net0/ip 10.10.73.125
ipxe>set net0/netmask 255.255.255.0
ipxe>set net0/gateway 10.10.73.1

Ping from DHCP server to iMAC failed.

It seems a issue with de tg3 driver. Are there plans to support this card?

Thanks in advance.
