I have Ubuntu 14.04 with DHCP running, I have to forward TFTP requests to Windows Deployment server, how do I do this? Is it even possible?


You want to use the next-server parameter in dhcp.conf to point to the tftp server.

An example from a LTSP entry which does what you want.

host thinclient {
  hardware ethernet   00:00:00:00:00:00;
  option root-path    "/path/to/root";
  filename            "/path/to/boot/image";

In this case the thin client boots, is given the .1.100 address and is pointed to for tftp.
