    BOOTP is the Bootstrap Protocol.

    The BOOTP protocol is utilized by diskless workstations to gather configuration information from a network server.

    The information provided by the BOOTP protocol is:

    • The IP address which should be utilized by the diskless workstation
    • The IP address of a server which will provide an Operating System image for the diskless workstation
    • The filename of an Operating System image which the diskless workstation should boot

    BOOTP workstations are identified by their MAC addresses.

    The BOOTP protocol utilizes UDP ports 67 and 68.
