    To: Comp.Sys.Dec
    Trying to mop boot a microvax II with a deqna ethernet card and netbsd
    1.6.1. The bootserver is running linux 2.4.26, along with mopd,
    bootparamd. When I type b/100 xqa0 on the mvax's console I get:
    ?4B CTRLERR, xqa0
    and on the linux side I get the following in syslog:
    Nov 10 19:37:10 h14me mopd[12573]: 8:0:2b:9:62:c4 (1) Do you have MOPBOOT?
    (Yes)
    Nov 10 19:37:10 h14me mopd[12573]: 8:0:2b:9:62:c4 Send me MOPBOOT
    It looks like the network hardware is all configured fine, so my problem
    must be software. I read the vax network booting howto at
    http://vax.sevensages.org/swdist/bsd...-netboot-HOWTO.
    I followed the procedures there, it's a little old but a lot of it was
    still usable.
    does anyone know what could be going on here?

    Could it be that the DEQNA is not supported for that kind of operation
    and that a DELQA is required?

    Fixed it, Running netbsd on the bootserver solved the problem. seems
    that there's something broken in the linux port of mopboot.
