	As a matter of fact, we do have a problem with such an odd filename.
You see, some HTTP URIs sometimes go something like
http://webserver/page#section and we do some processing with #.
 While looking at this, I'd like to ask, though: Are you quite
certain that the DHCP + PXE service is configured correctly? Could it
be that #MPCPathBoot# is intended as a place-holder in the
CA-Unicenter Managed PC Boot Server settings? A palce-holder for
whatever the TFTP directory is supposed to be?

	Hi Shao, 

	The #MPCPathBoot# prefix is a special path within the bootserver as
far as I am aware - sort of a virtual root I guess. It is a legal
file name on Windows and *NIX (though not a name I would use...) 

	In my reading of this then, I should be asking HP to get this
addressed in the gPXE source code as it's not a bug in the TFTP
server, though I may be wise asking for an enhancement for that too
to use more "friendly" path names...? 

	Many thanks for your assistance so far!
