I am using iPXE with a tree of scripts to allow the user to select a boot
from various menu options. From the main path or script provided originally
by the dhcp server the user can then navigates or chain from folder to
Is there a way to display and use the local (current) path used by iPXE ?
Or in other words, what is name of the variable I should use to access
or "show" the base path when a relative parameter is provided to chain ?
cf iPXE forum topic: http://forum.ipxe.org/showthread.php?tid=6837
Is this already possible (if yes how ?) to have a way to really extract
the current path or this feature needs to be added to the iPXE code ?
iPXE is a great project ! Thank you very much for your time and support.
Best Regards,

FYI:I am using the http protocol to navigate through the various menus
and the "filename" variable always shows the initial dhcp data.
