| Additional notes
| (Please edit this page to include any of your own useful hints and tips
| for fixing this error.)
| This error indicates that the TFTP server has returned an "Access
| Denied" error (TFTP code 2).
| Things to try:	
|   * Check that you are attempting to download the correct file.	
|   * Check that you provided a protocol while trying to download it from HTTP.
|   * Check the permissions on the file you are trying to download.	
|   * Check the TFTP servers logs	
|   * Check that you can download the file using another TFTP client,
|     such as tftp-hpa on Linux.	
|   * If you are using qemu's embedded TFTP server, try adding an extra
|     leading slash to your filename (to work around a known qemu bug).
|     For example, if your DHCP server is currently handing out
|     <code>filename "pxelinux.0";</code>then try changing this to
|     <code>filename "/pxelinux.0";</code>	
|   * Use tcpdump or wireshark to see exactly which file is requested

Yes, YOU can help. Start with checking that you can download the file
using another TFTP client. Continue with the other things to try.
Let the iPXE community (this mailinglist) know how it went.
