Hi Michael

Thanks for the quick reply!!  To get the info from ipstat, I hit Ctrl+B, followed by 'dhcp' and 'ipstat' because allowing iPXE to complete falls thru to localboot.  Localboot doesn't work because there is no OS yet on my test client.  I assume that'll give you what you want:

iPXE initializing devices...ok

 From the http://ipxe.org/1c056002, it appears that iPXE's IPv4 layer is rejecting the packets as invalid.  You can get some additional information by either:

- enabling the "ipstat" command (http://ipxe.org/cmd/ipstat), or

- building with DEBUG=ipv4
