Hi Wissam,

as written in http://www.ipxe.org/cmd/ifconf e.a. you should include a script into you binary i.e. in this way:

#!ipxe
# get an IPv6 address for first interface:
ifconf --configurator ipv6 net0
# now include boot-sequenz i.e. for linux:
kernel http://myinternalwebserver.lan/vmlinuz
initrd http://myinternalwebserver.lan/initrd.img
imgargs my_importantarguments_for_boot=thisarg
boot

So ipxe should download the files via ipv6 and boot.

Hth
Oliver
